ROCKLAND, Maine — Three people were taken to the hospital Wednesday afternoon after a crash at the intersection of Camden Street and Waldo Avenue.

None of the injuries was serious, and all of those hurt were treated at Pen Bay Medical Center and then released, according to Rockland police.

The crash occurred shortly after 12:30 p.m. when a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer driven north on Camden Street by Virginia Day, 26, who had no address listed in the police report, drove into the intersection. At the same time, a 2006 Kenworth tractor-trailer driven by Corey Jameson, 39, of St. George was entering the intersection while traveling west on Waldo Avenue.

Both drivers said they had a green light but other witnesses reported that only the tractor-trailer had the green light, according to the police report.

The tractor-trailer struck the rear passenger-side door of the car, causing the vehicle to spin and face east toward Waldo Avenue.

Day and her passengers, Winter Porter, 16, of Thomaston and Manola Porter, 47, of Thomaston, were taken to PBMC.

As is protocol for accidents involving commercial vehicles, Jameson was taken to PBMC for testing, according to police.
