Woman accused of being under influence in New England fire station crash
ARUNDEL, Maine (AP) — Authorities say a driver has been charged following a crash into part of a Maine fire station where firefighters and medical technicians sleep.
Police have accused 25-year-old Kastara Ylonen, of Biddeford, of operating under the influence of intoxicants in the crash, which happened at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday at the Arundel Fire Station.
York County Sheriff William King Jr. says it's not known if any first responders were in the area of the building when the crash happened, but no injuries were reported. Damage to the building is estimated at $50,000.
King said Ylonen was taken to Southern Maine Healthcare in Biddeford for evaluation. She's scheduled for a July 19 court appearance. It's not immediately known if she has a lawyer.
