TOWN OF MAINE (WBNG) -- Troopers say a woman was injured in a Tuesday crash and was airlifted away.

Several emergency crews responded to a one-car rollover on Route 26, just south of Dunham Hill Road around 12:45 p.m.

According to New York State Police, the driver, who was the only person in the car, drifted on to the shoulder, over-corrected and lost control before crashing into a NYSEG utility pole.

It is not yet known what caused the driver to drift off the road, troopers say.

State police say the driver had complaints of neck soreness and possible injuries to lower extremities resulting from the crash.

Troopers say the helicopter was called out of precaution, since the driver needed to be extricated from the vehicle by emergency responders.

The crash also took down the utility pole, with some wires catching fire in a driveway, according to police.
