Illinois woman killed in 2-car Hermon collision

HERMON — An Illinois woman was killed in a two-car collision late Wednesday afternoon on the Fuller Road in Hermon.

According to Penobscot County Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Burgess, Evelyn Freeman, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 5:45 p.m. accident. Freeman was a passenger in a car driven by Penelope Roundy-Crowe, 48, of the Horseback Road, Carmel.

Burgess said the roads were icy and Roundy-Crowe apparently lost control of her vehicle and collided with an oncoming car driven by Scott Shaw, 40, of Carmel.

Shaw, and his 15-year-old son, Justin, were treated at St. Joseph Hospital in Bangor and released. They were not wearing seat belts, Burgess said. Shaw’s 1984 Buick was heavily damaged.

A hospital official said Roundy-Crowe was still being evaluated at press time. Burgess said she suffered internal injuries and possibly a broken hip. A hydraulic rescue device was used to remove the women from their demolished 1984 Nissan.

Burgess said he was not sure if the two women were wearing seat belts.

The accident remained under investigation.
