Five Hurt in Windsor (ME) Ambulance Crash

A Delta Ambulance with a patient inside rolled over completely Sunday morning on Route 17 in Windsor after it collided with an SUV in an accident attributed to icy road conditions.

Deputy Mike Bickford said five of the six people in the two vehicles were taken to hospitals for evaluations and treatment of injuries following the accident on Route 17 near Baker Road.

Heather Hinkley, who was a passenger in the SUV being driven by John Hinkley, 39, was taken by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center; and the others were taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta. Bickford said Heather Hinkley’s injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. The Hinkleys are from West Gardiner.

A nursing supervisor at Central Maine Medical Center said Sunday she could neither confirm or deny that Heather Hinkley was there.

Emergency responders spent about four hours at the collision site in Windsor, and the road was closed for a while because of debris and to allow investigators to photograph the scene, Bickford said Sunday afternoon.

He said the accident, which was reported at 8:10 a.m., occurred as Delta Ambulance driver George Shaw, 46, was driving west on Route 17 toward Augusta from Windsor with a patient, Betty Crockett, 71, and a medic, Travis Burton, 33.
