CHESTERVILLE, Maine — A two-car collision Monday afternoon near a sharp corner Borough Road sent two drivers to a Farmington hospital, one with a serious ankle injury.

Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Chase said the accident near 372 Borough Road remains under investigation.

Chase said Darlene Phillips, 44, of Chesterville, driver of a Ford Taurus, was heading east up a hill while Dustin Staples, 16, of Farmington, driver of a Mercury sedan, was heading west down the hill when the two collided.

Phillips had to be extricated from her vehicle, Chase said.

“Darlene has a severe ankle injury,” he said.
