POLAND, Maine — No information was available Saturday night on the condition of an Oxford County Jail corrections officer and another man who were taken to a Lewiston hospital Friday following a crash at the intersection of Routes 26 and 122.

Lt. Glenn Holt of the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office said the accident was reported at 3:58 p.m. He said Dan Landry, a corrections officer at the Oxford County Jail, was returning to the facility from transporting a prisoner to Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn when the crash occurred.

According to Holt, Landry was northbound on Route 26 when a southbound car driven by Adam Burdin of Poland turned left in front of Landry’s cruiser onto Route 122. Landry and Burdin were taken to Central Maine Medical Center.

Capt. Ed Quinn of the Oxford County Sheriff’s Department told WMTW-Channel 8 that Landry bruised his ribs in the collision, which caused heavy damage to the cruiser, a 2010 Dodge Charger. Holt said the car being driven by Burdin was owned by Veronica Emery of Poland.

The crash remained under investigation by the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department.
