4 hurt as car slams into plow truck in Baileyville

By Diana Graettinger

BAILEYVILLE, Maine — Four people were injured Tuesday morning when a car traveling toward Calais smashed into the side of a state snowplow truck at the intersection of Routes 9 and 1.

At 6:49 a.m. a Maine Department of Transportation plow truck driven by Donald Reynolds, 54, of Robbinston was in the process of turning left onto Route 1 at the intersection of Routes 9 and 1, near the Irving Big Stop, when the state truck crossed in front of a 1994 Toyota Tercel driven by Annette Dana, 40, of Princeton. The Dana car smashed into the front of the real dual wheels on the driver’s side of the truck.

There were three passengers in the Dana car — Clay Levesque, 41, Debbie Levesque, 43, and Randy Stevens, 24, all of Princeton, said Maine State Police Trooper Jason Fowler on Tuesday.

Reynolds and Dana were wearing seat belts; the three passengers were not, the trooper said.

Emergency personnel were called and an extrication device was used to remove Debbie Levesque from the rear seat of the car.

Downeast EMS took all four people from the Toyota to Calais Regional Hospital.

Debbie Levesque apparently suffered head and facial injuries while the rest received “minor non-incapacitating injuries,” Fowler said.

The driver of the truck was not injured.

Fowler said the truck had about $200 in damage, while the Toyota was totaled.

The Baileyville Police and Fire Departments assisted at the scene.

The incident remains under investigation.
