WARREN – Four people were injured, including two who were taken to hospital, following a three-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon on Route 1.
At approximately 3 p.m. on May 24, Knox Regional Communications Center received reports of a motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Route 1 and Stirling Road in Warren. A Toyota Camry, operated by Mary Gammon, 89, of Warren, was stopped in the south lane of Route 1 waiting to turn left onto the north entrance to Stirling Road when it was hit by a Toyota Tundra, operated by Wilson Collamore, 46, of Waldoboro, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
The Camry crossed the northern lane of Route and ended up on Stirling Road. The Tundra went right and hit the southbound guardrail, bounced and went left crossing the center line, hit a Fusion, operated by James Dorian, 58, of Waldoboro, and crashed found in the ditch heading north. The Fusion ended up on the north shoulder of Route 1.
Mary Gammon and Collamore were treated and released at the scene for their injuries. Dorian was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Camry passenger Earl Gammon was extracted and taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The incident is still under investigation, but the driver’s inattention and following too closely are believed to be factors in the crash.
