Maine State Police responded to the crash shortly after 1:30 p.m. at the southernmost end of the Soucy Hill Road construction project in T14-R6, according to Corporal Corey Hafford.

The initial investigation showed that Jamie Burnham of Lewiston was operating her 2010 Dodge Caliber northbound on Route 11 at a high rate of speed. As she approached a construction zone, she lost control of her car, which went off the road and rolled over several times before coming to a stop against some trees, Hafford said.

Burnham sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported by ambulance to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent. She was not wearing her seat belt.

Two passengers, 23-year-old Shaughn Little of Lewiston and 1-year-old Olivia Burnham, were not hurt in the crash, Hafford said.
