Newburgh Accident 

Speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors in a two-vehicle accident in Route 9 in Newburgh Thursday, according to police.Authorities say a witness told them a pick up, driven by 25-year-old Kim Cunningham, had passed at a high rate of speed shortly before the accident.They say Cunningham was ejected from the vehicle.She is in good condition at Eastern Maine Medical Center.Police say testing shows Cunningham was driving drunk and her license had been suspended.Police say both vehicles involved in the accident were traveling from Dixmont toward Hampden.And it appears that Cunningham’s truck struck the car, driven by 63-year-old Diana Cram, from behind.”I’m not sure if the truck had started into a skid and then struck the Cobalt. But there is an extreme large amount of skid marks here. It appears as though the truck had tried to stop, not sure if it was before hitting or after hitting.”Both vehicles hit the guy wire to a pole, which knocked out power for awhile.The accident is still under investigation.
