Maine woman improving after crash that killed her 4-year-old son in Casco


LEWISTON, Maine — The survivor of a crash that killed her 4-year-old son is improving at Central Maine Medical Center.

Crystal Petersen of Gray was critically injured in the crash in Casco on Aug. 11, but a hospital spokeswoman says her condition has improved to serious. Her son, Cameron Joseph Petersen, died at the scene. The driver, 28-year-old Michael Minson of Casco, was treated and released from a hospital.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1NzLVUl ) reports that officials said Minson never had a license to drive.

The newspaper also said a report by a sheriff's deputy indicated Minson was driving erratically and that his pupils were "pin pointed," a potential sign of use of opiates.

Minson has not been charged with a crime. The Associated Press couldn't find a phone number to reach him.
