A Wiscasset man was taken to the hospital after another driver ran a stop sign and struck his vehicle at a four-way intersection in Wiscasset on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
Markos Mavrogiannis, 67, of Wytopitlock, was driving a 2005 Volvo east on Indian Road, toward the four-way intersection with Lowell Town Road and Willow Lane, according to Wiscasset Police Chief Larry Hesseltine. Gary King, 57, of Wiscasset, was driving a 2016 Nissan Rogue north on Lowell Town Road.
Mavrogiannis did not stop at the stop sign and the front of the King vehicle struck the side of the Mavrogiannis vehicle, according to Hesseltine. The crash was reported at 2:10 p.m.
Mavrogiannis was summonsed for failure to stop at a stop sign, Hesseltine said.
King was taken to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick, Hesseltine said. He did not know the nature of King’s injuries.
Mavrogiannis had three puppies in his vehicle, which he had bought prior to the crash. Neither Mavrogiannis nor his puppies were hurt.
By the reporter’s observation, the King vehicle was totaled and there was significant damage to one side of Mavrogiannis’ vehicle.
There have been four crashes at the intersection since Hesseltine started as police chief in September 2018, he said.
The Wiscasset Ambulance Service and Wiscasset Fire Department also responded.
