SIDNEY — A woman is hospitalized after being impaled by a branch.
A sheriff’s deputy said Tuesday morning’s high winds snapped a pine tree and a branch penetrated the dashboard of a car driven by 78-year-old David Roy as he was driving on the Pond Road in Sidney.
According to Lt. Chris Read of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, the branch impaled 79-year-old Theresa Roy, who was a passenger in the vehicle.
David Roy was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Theresa Roy was in critical condition.
