JAY — A Livermore Falls teenager was stuck in her father’s pickup truck for about 30 minutes Friday after it snapped a utility pole on Claybrook Road and wires fell on it, Sgt. Russell Adams said.

Ashlyn Williams, 17, was driving west toward Spruce Mountain High School when she lost control of the truck on the wet road, overcorrected, and it went off the road and struck the pole, he said.

She was not injured in the 7:34 a.m. accident.

Emergency responders had her stay in the truck until Central Maine Power Co. personnel arrived.

“We kept talking to her until CMP got there,” Adams said.

Jay Fire Rescue Department assisted Adams.

The 2008 Ford F-150 owned by Michael Williams was heavily damaged.
