Two people sustained minor injuries in a two-vehicle accident in front of Hanley’s Market, at the intersection of Route 129 and Route 130 in Bristol, the evening of Thursday, May 31.
The Lincoln County Communications Center dispatched the Bristol Fire Department and Bristol First Responders at 8:49 p.m. The Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office also responded.
Phoebe Nichols, driving a 2011 Toyota Prius, was turning left onto Bristol Road from Route 129, according to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Brendan Kane. Cheyenne Cash was driving a 2011 Subaru Outback south on Bristol Road.
Nichols did not yield the right-of-way and the vehicles collided, according to Kane.
The accident resulted in significant damage to both vehicles and minor injuries to the drivers, who were the only occupants of the vehicles.
Neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the accident, according to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Matt Day.
Nichols was taken by CLC Ambulance to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus in Damariscotta. Cash took a personal vehicle to the hospital in order to be checked out, according to Kane.
The Prius was towed by Quick Turn Auto Repair & Towing, and the Subaru by East Coast Recovery and Towing.
Bristol Road was not closed after the accident, but traffic was controlled by the sheriff’s office.
