Roll-over driver taken by life flight to Boston Medical

A 73-year-old Carlisle woman was air lifted from Banta-Davis Field to Boston Medical Center after her convertible rolled over at the corner of Bedford Road and Maple Street shortly before two on Monday afternoon, June 28. She was alone in the car.

According to Lieut. Leo Crowe, who responded at the scene, the convertible flipped over after the operator, who was heading west toward Carlisle Center on Route 225, veered into the eastbound lane and hit a tree and a stone wall. She was not wearing a seatbelt. Sgt. Scott Barnes, who happened to be on road patrol in the immediate area, called in the accident and a request for medical assistance. She was taken by the Carlisle ambulance to Banta-Davis Field, met there by Life Flight and taken to the Boston Medical Center. The driver escaped without severe injury and has since been discharged from the hospital. ∆
