Accidents

On May 18, an accident occurred on Middle Road in Dresden involving Robert L. Gilley, 20, of Richmond. Mr. Gilley was operating his 2004 Subaru Impreza northbound when he lost control of his vehicle causing him to go off the roadway on the right side.  His vehicle then traveled off the road for approximately 50 feet before striking a utility pole, breaking it, before coming to rest in a ditch. Deputy Jonathan Colby was the investigating officer.

On May 22, an accident occurred on Waldoboro Road in Jefferson involving Kurt D. McNeil, 34, of Wiscasset and David W. Tracy, 36, of Mercer. Mr. McNeil was operating his 2005 Chevrolet Colorado northbound on East Pond Road and when he came to the intersection, he began to skid. As a result, he went through the stop sign and struck Mr. Tracy’s 1997 Peter Built truck, which was traveling westbound on Waldoboro Road. Deputy Jonathan Colby was the investigating officer.

On May 22, an accident occurred on Atlantic Highway in Waldoboro involving Robert E. Carlisle, 74, of Belfast and Derek S. Booker, 29, of Waldoboro. Mr. Booker was operating his 2018 GMC Sierra northbound and made a left turn onto Union Road, failing to yield to Mr. Carlisle’s 2016 Ford Transit van. As a result, Booker’s vehicle struck Carlisle’s vehicle in the passenger rear side. Sgt. Jared Mitkus was the investigating officer.

On May 22, an accident occurred on Middle Road in Dresden involving Robert W. Nitzel, 50, of Farmingdale and Trista N. Toothaker, 31, of Topsham. Ms. Toothaker was operating her 2016 Dodge Journey southbound on Middle Road when she did not see the stop sign and continued into the intersection. Mr. Nitzel was operating his 2005 Honda Odyssey westbound on Indian Road when Toothaker entered the intersection at full speed, causing Nitzel to hit Toothaker’s vehicle. Deputy Sean Pfahler was the investigating officer.

On May 23, an accident occurred on Boothbay Road in Edgecomb involving Joanna Stilwell, 34, of Woolwich. Ms. Stilwell was operating her 2007 Toyota Prius northbound when she looked down and became distracted. She stated she looked down too long and when she looked up, she was going off the road. Stilwell had her vehicle on cruise control and stated she hit the brakes, however, she did not feel them working. She then over corrected, causing her vehicle to cross the road and go into the ditch. Deputy Sean Pfahler was the investigating officer.

On May 24, an accident occurred on Route 1 in Newcastle involving Nadia MT. Leiner, 19, of Brunswick and Andrew C. Curtin, 65, of North Yarmouth. Ms. Leiner was operating her 2013 Subaru Crosstrek northbound when she slowed to make a left turn into the parking lot of a car dealership. She thought she had enough time to make the turn as Mr. Andrew was operating his 2011 Toyota Prius southbound. Leiner then noticed she did not have enough time to turn and applied her brakes. However, it did not do enough, causing Mr. Curtin to collide with her vehicle. Deputy Sean Pfahler was the investigating officer.
