DEXTER, Maine — Slippery road conditions and speed contributed to a head-on collision Thursday on Route 94 that sent four people to the hospital.

Linda Ellis, 58, of Corinth was driving westbound on Route 94 at 9:40 a.m. when an eastbound car driven by Gerald Geisinger, 25, of Garland crossed into her lane at Decker’s Corner, according to Sgt. Kevin Wintle of the Dexter Police Department. Wintle said the two vehicles collided head-on.

Ellis and her passenger, Gerald Tilley, no age provided but reportedly an older man, were taken by ambulance to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. Ellis suffered facial injuries and Tilley had chest injuries, according to Wintle.

Ellis and Tilley were in good condition Thursday afternoon, according to an EMMC spokesman.

Geisinger and his passenger, Christopher OShea, 45, of Garland, were taken by ambulance to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft.  Both had cuts and bruises.

Tom Lizotte, Mayo Regional Hospital’s director of marketing and development, said Geisinger was expected to be released Tuesday afternoon and that OShea would be transferred to EMMC, he said.

Assisting the Dexter Police Department at the scene were the Maine State Police, Dexter firefighters and Mayo Ambulance service.
