WARREN — A 16-year-old Boothbay resident has been hospitalized with serious injuries following a two vehicle car crash in Warren Saturday night.

The juvenile, who was not identified because of her (updated from his) age, was the driver of a 2016 Mitsubishi, which was involved in the crash that was reported to Knox Regional Communications Center, January 25, shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The other occupant in the Mitsubishi, Dylan Dickey, 19, of Waldoboro, was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

When first responders arrived to the Atlantic Highway (Route 1) scene just south of the Route 90 intersection, they found both occupants trapped inside the vehicle. Both required extrication by Warren Fire Department, according to Knox County Sheriff’s Office, in a news release.

The driver of the other vehicle, a silver 2019 Toyota car, operated by Lyndon Franks, 48, of the United Kingdom, was also transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

“The circumstances around the crash are still under investigation,” said the KCSO. “Driver inattention and inexperience are believed to be the biggest contributing factors in the crash.”

KCSO deputies were assisted by Warren Fire and EMS, Waldoboro EMS and Oyster River Towing.

WARREN — Deputies from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the cause of a car accident that sent all three vehicle occupants to the hospital Saturday night.

Saturday, Jan. 25, at approximately 11:20 p.m., Warren Fire and Rescue, along with two ambulances from Waldoboro, were called to a two-vehicle crash on Atlantic Highway (Route 1) near the intersection with Camden Road (Route 90). Two of the occupants were in one car, and the third was alone in the other car.

As wind gusts blew heavy rain into the night, deputies and firefighters remained on scene for another 90 minutes, taking measurements within the closed portion of the southbound lane that could possibly help in determining the cause of the crash. 

A wrecker then hauled the vehicles away, and all personnel were clear of the scene by 12:55 a.m.
