49-year-old Terri Sebring is being treated at Central Maine Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries, said police.

Trooper Greg Stevens said Sebring over-corrected after nearly colliding with another car in front of her.  Her car when skidded off the road , spun around and ended up in a group of trees in the median.  The roof of the car had to be cut away by firefighters to free her from the vehicle. 

Her dog escaped injury and was turned over to an animal control officer from Lincoln County.

Stevens said it is not clear why Sebring lost control of the car.
