PALMYRA, Maine — Drivers of two vehicles were uninjured after their vehicles collided in front of Walmart along Route 2 on Saturday afternoon.

Jasper Walsh, 31, of Bangor was traveling east along Main Street in Palmyra when Cassandra Dunphy, 35, of Detroit, who was traveling west, crossed into Walsh’s path while turning into Walmart, according to Somerset County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Jeremy Leal. Police received the call at 12:40 p.m.

“She turned into his path. She didn’t see him,” said Leal. “Luckily, nobody was hurt. Property damage only.

“He tried to evade her, and just wasn’t able to,” said Leal.

Walsh’s black 2010 Toyota Yaris sustained heavy front-end damage, while both right-side doors on Dunphy’s 2007 silver Toyota Camry were crushed inward. Airbags deployed on both vehicles. There were no other passengers in either car.

Leal said no charges will be filed.

“It’s just an accident,” he said.

Maine State Police Trooper Christopher Carr and the Newport Fire Department assisted at the scene.
