FARMINGTON, Maine — A Wilton driver received a summons for failing to stop at a stop sign Monday morning after her vehicle collided with an oncoming car at the intersection of Broadway and High Street.

Patricia Crandall, 55, was traveling north on High Street in a 1995 Ford Mustang about 10:30 a.m. Monday and went through the stop sign at a low speed, Farmington police officer Mike Raymond said.

She’s fairly new to the area and tried to avoid the collision by breaking and turning left, he said.

Her vehicle collided with a 1999 Subaru driven by Alice Tracy, 63, of Starks. Tracy was driving west into town from Perham Street.

Tracy complained of left arm pain and was checked at the scene by paramedics from NorthStar. She refused to be taken to the hospital, he said.

This intersection has been the scene of a number of accidents over the last few years.

Both vehicles sustained more than $1,000 in damage, Raymond estimated. Crandall was able to drive the Mustang from the scene; Tracy’s vehicle was towed by Dutch Gap Auto.

Members of Farmington Fire and Rescue helped direct traffic and clear debris, although there were no fluid leaks, he said.
