Van and minivan collide in Burnham

By Walter Griffin

BURNHAM, Maine — No injuries were reported in a collision between a mini-van and a van filled with children on the Troy Road on Friday night.

The accident occurred at the intersection of the Troy Road and the South Horseback Road at approximately 8:20 p.m.

Suzanne Lopez, 55, of Bangor was traveling along the South Horseback Road in a 2007 Toyota Scion when she failed to stop for a stop sign and ran into the right front end of a 2005 Dodge van driven by Amanda Reynolds, 29, of Jackson, who was headed east on the Troy Road.

The impact of the collision sent the van spinning into the front yard of a house on the corner and left the mini-van in the middle of the Troy Road pointed west. Neither Lopez nor Reynolds complained of injuries. Girls aged 14, 10, 2 and 1 and a 5-year-old boy were riding with Reynolds and also were uninjured. All involved in the wreck were secured in safety seats or wearing seat belts.

Damage to the Toyota was estimated at $15,000 and damage to the Dodge was estimated at $9,000. Unity Fire and Ambulance responded and assisted at the scene.

Waldo County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. James Porter, Detective Matt Curtis and Deputies Austin Reed and Ben Seekins assisted with the investigation, Curtis said Tuesday.
