A Wiscasset woman has been arrested after crashing her vehicle through the front door of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and then escaping from the scene on foot.
At about a quarter to midnight on Saturday, police say 35-year-old Kristen Crowley crashed her Hyundai Sonata directly into the front door of Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. According to police, Crowley failed to negotiate the intersection and traveled straight through, crossing Route 1.
The crash pushed the entry door in, and the car was stopped by an interior lobby railing. Then, Crowley escaped from the scene on foot, police say. She was arrested a few minutes later on Federal Street.
Police say Crowley was taken to the hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. She was then taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail.
Police say Crowley has been charged with operating under the influence, escaping from the scene of an accident, and violation of conditions of release.
According to police, Crowley has been also involved in a November robbery while out on bail.
