STETSON, Maine — A Corinth woman was injured Monday afternoon when the pickup she was riding in collided with another pickup at a Stetson intersection.

Wanda Goodrow, 59, was taken to a Bangor hospital for treatment of arm and leg pain, Deputy James Kennedy of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department said Monday evening.

Kennedy said Goodrow was not wearing a seat belt when the accident occurred. Further information about her condition was not immediately available.

Kennedy said the crash happened shortly before 2:30 p.m., when Ted Porter, 55, of Plymouth failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of the Stetson, Mullen, Lakins and Village roads, and drove his 1994 Chevrolet pickup truck into the path of a 2004 Chevrolet pickup driven by 61-year-old Dennis Goodrow of Corinth.

Goodrow, the injured woman’s husband, was unable to avoid Porter’s pickup, Kennedy said.

Kennedy said that Porter was not familiar with roads in the area.

Both of the pickup trucks were heavily damaged in the crash and likely will be declared total losses, Kennedy said.

Porter and Dennis Goodrow were not injured, he said.

Kennedy said that Wanda Goodrow was taken to the hospital by a Hermon Volunteer Rescue Squad ambulance. He was assisted at the scene by Stetson rescue and fire personnel.
