A Burnham woman was involved in a single-vehicle roll-over accident around 4 p.m. April 13.

Waldo County Chief Deputy Bob Keating said Stanna M. Alton, 27, was driving a Honda Civic on Mount Road when, according to Keating, she swerved to avoid a group of turkeys and began fish-tailing. Keating said Alton’s car then went into a ditch and struck a culvert, when sent it airborne. Alton was ejected from the car, which struck a tree and rolled over onto its roof.

Keating said Alton left the scene and went to a neighboring house, where a resident encouraged her to call the police. Alton did not call the police to report the accident, according to Keating.

Police received a call from a passerby around 4 p.m. that an unattended vehicle was rolled over on the road. By the time officers arrived, Alton had reportedly returned to the scene of the accident and was being treated by first responders.

Alton was taken by ambulance to the Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield, where she was treated for unknown injuries and released later that day. Keating said no other cars were involved in the accident. Damage to Alton’s car was unknown as of April 14.

Alton, who was out on bail at the time of the accident, was summoned for operating without a license, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, violating condition of release and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
