CLIFTON, Maine — A Baileyville woman suffered a head injury Saturday afternoon when she lost control of her car on Route 9, and a Calais man escaped serious injury when his vehicle struck the woman’s disabled car.
Nancy Owens, 38, was eastbound shortly after 1:30 p.m. when her vehicle crossed the centerline and struck a guardrail on the opposite side of the road, according to Maine state Trooper Chris Hashey. She was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.
David Johnson, 67, of Calais, was driving toward Bangor in the westbound lane. His 2001 Chevy Impala T-boned Owens’ car on the passenger side, the trooper said. He suffered minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital.
There were no passengers in either car, Hashey said.
Both vehicles were demolished, he said about 90 minutes after the accident.
Owens reportedly was combative when the paramedics arrived, the trooper said, which often happens with a head injury.
The accident victim was evaluated late Saturday afternoon, according to an EMMC nursing supervisor.
On Sunday, a nursing supervisor said there was no information on Owens.
