Two people were transported to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus after a two-car collision on Route 1 in Damariscotta on Wednesday, Oct. 12.
Laura Safford, 46, of Damariscotta, was driving north on Route 1 near Center Street, according to Damariscotta Police Chief Ron Young.
Safford attempted to turn left onto Center Street and pulled in front of a 2005 Hyundai Sonata southbound on Route 1, driven by Barbara Blum, 78, of Thomaston, Young said.
Patricia Sullivan, of Camden, was a passenger in the Sonata, Young said.
Safford’s vehicle continued into the eastbound Center Street lane, while Blum’s vehicle ran over a street sign, Young said.
Airbags in both vehicles deployed, Young said. Both Blum and Sullivan were wearing their seat belts.
The Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service transported Safford and Sullivan to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus with non-life-threatening injuries, Young said.
Young issued Safford a summons for not wearing her seat belt, and an additional summons is pending, he said.
The Damariscotta and Newcastle fire departments also responded to the scene.
