According to Chris Miller of the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department, Silkey was traveling south on the New Limerick Road in Linneus when she glanced in the rearview mirror at her baby. When she did this, Silkey veered onto the shoulder of the road, overcorrected, flipping her 2002 Ford Taurus and striking a utility pole, said Miller. The car was totaled. All three were transported to Houlton Regional Hospital, treated and released.
