Three-car crash in Hudson sends four to hospitals

HUDSON, Maine — A three-car accident at the intersection of Routes 221 and 43 about 5:15 p.m. Friday sent four people to area hospitals, but none of the injuries were life-threatening.

Sophia Wilson, 40, of Dover-Foxcroft was driving her 2003 Honda Element north on Route 221 when she turned left onto Route 43 and into the path of a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire being driven by Richard Randall, 29, of Bradford, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean McCue said Friday night.

After the two cars collided, the Sunfire slid into the passenger’s-side door of a stopped 2005 Silver Nissan pickup truck driven by Priscilla McLellan, 63, of Glenburn, the deputy said. The Honda spun 180 degrees before come to rest along the front side the pickup.

No charges were filed, McCue said.

Wilson, whose 5-year-old daughter, Eleni Wilson, was not injured in the crash, was taken to Mayo Regional Hospital complaining of pain but had no apparent broken bones and was not bleeding, McCue said.

Randall and his two passengers, Bryan Wright, 17, and Damon Murphy, 10, both of Hudson, were taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. Randall complained of ankle and neck discomfort, Wright suffered facial lacerations from windshield glass and Murphy complained of stomach and chest pain.

McLellan was not injured.

All drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts, according to McCue.

The Sunbird and the Element were demolished. The pickup had minor damage.
