GRAY, Maine (AP) - An Auburn woman who was critically injured when the car she was riding in struck a 1,000-pound moose on the Maine Turnpike remains in a medically-induced coma.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1L4Ra80 ) that 27-year-old Taylor Norcross remained in critical condition Sunday in the intensive care unit at Central Maine Medical Center.

She and her fiancé, 39-year-old Frank Gatto of Auburn, struck the moose while driving northbound on the turnpike in Gray just after 8 p.m. Wednesday. Gatto, who was driving, was not injured.

Police say the moose went over the top of the car, taking the roof off. The moose was killed in the crash.
