WEST PARIS – Two people were taken to the hospital early Sunday morning after their vehicle rolled over at the intersection of Abbott Hill and Chamberlain roads.

Milford McInnis, 29, of Lewiston, and Amanda Brulotte, 24, of West Paris, suffered injuries when their 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled over once at the intersection shortly before 5 a.m.

According to state Trooper Ron Turnick, McInnis was driving the vehicle and Brulotte was a passenger. Neither was wearing a seat belt. A second passenger, 30-year-old Corey Larrabee of Lewiston, was wearing a seat belt and uninjured.

Turnick said Brulotte was taken to Stephens Memorial Hospital with hip pain and McInnis was transported by LifeFlight helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center after drifting in and out of consciousness at the crash site. Neither was hospitalized as of Tuesday.

Turnick said speed played a factor in the crash, but alcohol may also have contributed. He said the vehicle smelled of alcohol, that the passengers said they had been drinking at a friend’s house, and that the unofficial results of a blood test on McInnis showed his blood-alcohol level at .22 percent, above Maine’s legal limit of .08 percent.
