Fatal Crash in Pittston 

Police say a woman was killed this weekend when her car crashed in the woods in Pittston.

The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Department says a minivan was found Saturday morning on its roof off the Stage Road in Pittston.

Police say it apparently skidded and crashed into a wooded area without braking after it left the road.

The driver, identified as Carla Hunter, was thrown from the van and suffered head injuries. Hunter was dead when police arrived.

She was last seen leaving home Friday night. Police say the minivan was not visible immediately after the accident because of the heavy growth where it crashed.
