LEWISTON — A woman was charged Thursday with operating without a license after the car she was driving flipped onto its side on Randall Road.

Police said Alisha Corredor, 52, of New Britain, Connecticut, was rounding a curve shortly before 7:30 a.m. when the right front wheel of the 2007 Dodge Caliber climbed the ramp of a trailer parked on the side of the road. The right front corner of the car smashed into the side of the trailer, flipping the car onto its side, police said.

The woman told police the sun was in her eyes, temporarily blinding her.

The car was registered to Robert Finch of Sabattus.

The 2010 trailer is registered to Daniel Fortin of Greene and was last driven by Jeffrey Guay, 47, of Lewiston who was providing landscaping services in the area of 388 Randall Road at the time.

Corredor, who was helped out of the car, was taken to a local hospital when she complained of leg and back pain.

Operating without a license is a Class E misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail.
