WAYNE, Maine (AP) - Police say a 17-year-old Leeds girl is "lucky to be alive" after suffering only minor injuries in a spectacular rollover crash in Wayne.

The girl was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries after the crash at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday that sent her SUV hurtling end over end.

Sgt. Scott Taylor of the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office says the teen was "mostly shaken up" and complained chest and shoulder pain.

He tells the Kennebec Journal she was alone in the vehicle.

He says the driver got distracted and went off the road before her SUV rolled and came to rest on its roof.

She was wearing a seat belt. Her name was not released.
