AUBURN — A Lisbon woman was listed as stable at a Lewiston hospital Tuesday night with injuries from a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer on state Route 4, Auburn Deputy Police Chief Tim Cougle said.

Deborah Howe, 69, was driving north when her Ford Focus crossed the centerline and collided with a Hannaford tractor-trailer driven by Alan Clifton, 64, of Windham. She was taken to Central Maine Medical Center with serious injuries, Cougle said.

The truck driver was not injured, he said.

State police assisted Auburn police with the investigation and accident reconstruction. Route 4 was closed for nearly three hours, according to Cougle.
