CANTON — Two adults and two small children suffered minor injuries Wednesday afternoon after the sport utility vehicle they were in rolled off Route 108 in a snowstorm, police said.

They were taken by Med-Care Ambulance to Rumford Hospital.

The accident happened at about 2:51 p.m., 2½ miles south of the Canton Big Apple convenience store.

Oxford County Deputy Sheriff Cpl. Justin Brown said Casandra Sonoqui, 21, of Portland, was driving a 2006 Toyota Highlander west toward Rumford when the SUV got caught up in icy slush.

The SUV veered off the road into a snowbank and rolled over onto its side at the Castonguay Logging and Trucking yard log pile, he said. Brown said he didn’t know if the Highlander actually struck the logs.

Sonoqui’s passengers, all of whom were in the back, were the SUV’s owner, Timothy McLain, 23, of Biddeford, and two girls ages 2 weeks and 18 months, Brown said.

“She was driving a little too fast for the conditions but not at a high speed,” he said.

Canton firefighters directed single-lane traffic around the scene until M/T Pockets of Dixfield could right the SUV and haul it away.
