An off-road accident caused by a snow-covered road left a woman and her daughter injured Monday night.
According to the Gouldsboro Police Department, Holly Sprague, 33, of Steuben was driving on Maine Route 195 when she lost control of her vehicle on the snow-covered road about 9 p.m. The car went across the road before the passenger side crashed into a utility pole.
Ms. Sprague and her 3-year-old daughter were transported to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for medical attention to serious injuries. They were then transferred by medical helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center for further treatment. Ms. Sprague was later taken to a hospital in Massachusetts. Ms. Sprague’s 5-year-old daughter, who was also in the vehicle, was not injured in the wreck.
The Road Weather Management Program states that snow is a factor in 15 percent of weather-related crashes and is a factor in 12 percent of weather-related crash fatalities.
Seeing a copy of the Maine accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Maine Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Maine accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
