Woman crashes into tree


LISBON — A Lisbon Falls woman and her two young daughters escaped with minor injuries in a single-vehicle crash on Main Street in Lisbon Falls on Thursday night.

Tracie Perou, 23, was driving south on upper Main Street when she swerved to avoid a deer in the road, causing her to lose control of her SUV, Officer Richard St. Amant said. Perou went off the right shoulder and slammed head-on into a pine tree, St. Amant said.

Perou and her daughters, ages 2 and 4, complained of pain, the officer said, and were taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. Her 2005 Ford Escape was demolished in the 8:30 p.m. crash.
