State Police say that 61-year-old Robin Carney was traveling west on the State Road in her 2014 Ford Mustang at around 2 p.m. Wednesday when a 17-year-old female from Presque Isle did not see Carney and attempted to pull out onto State Road from the intersection of Moose Ridge Road and head east towards Presque State Road in a 2002 Volvo.

The 17-year-old female pulled out directly into the path of the westbound Mustang and the two vehicles collided. Both vehicles were demolished in the crash.

Mrs. Carney was transported by Crown Ambulance to The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle with non-life threatening injuries.  The other operator was not injured.

Both occupants were wearing seat-belts.
