BANGOR, Maine — A local woman was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment of arm injuries she suffered in a two-car crash Thursday at the intersection of Ohio and Sixteenth streets.

Sabrina Lund, 36, was driving her 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier on Ohio Street about 5:30 p.m. when a 1999 Subaru driven by Jeremy Dunakin, 31, of Brewer pulled into her path from Sixteenth Street, Officer John Robinson said.

Despite her attempt to stop her car, Lund struck Dunakin’s vehicle on the driver’s side.

“She did a good job” trying to avoid the crash, Robinson said. “She was close to coming to a full stop.”

Robinson said that a man and a female minor who were passengers in Lund’s car complained of pain but did not require treatment at EMMC. Dunakin, he said, did not have a passenger when the crash occurred.

The accident was reported by Penobscot County Sheriff Glenn Ross, who said Thursday night that he came upon it seconds after it occurred. Ross remained at the scene until Bangor police officers arrived.

Dunakin was charged with failure to yield, and a charge also is pending for failure to provide proof of insurance.
