BROWNVILLE, Maine —Two local men escaped serious injury late Thursday afternoon when the vehicles they were driving collided on Stickney Hill Road.

The Rev. Isaac Paynter, 55, was eastbound about 4:45 p.m. when he turned his vehicle onto Charlotte’s Way in front of a westbound vehicle driven by Robert Thibodeau, 56, according to Brownville Police Chief Nick Clukey.

Clukey said Paynter’s 2001 Saab wagon struck Thibodeau’s 1999 GMC Sierra.

Both men were injured and were treated at the scene by Three Rivers Ambulance personnel, Clukey said. Mark Butterfield, 45, a passenger in Thibodeau’s vehicle, was not injured.

Clukey said both vehicles were demolished.

Milo police assisted Clukey at the scene.
