WATERVILLE, Maine — Four people from central Maine, including an elderly Waterville man, escaped serious injury Wednesday afternoon after a four-car accident, according to police.

Daniel Hirschy, 94, was traveling along First Rangeway Road when his vehicle struck a car operated by Nicole Grenier, 24, of Oakland, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said.

Grenier was at the intersection of Western Avenue and Chase Avenue, Rumsey said, when she was struck by Hirschy. There is a stop sign at the end of Western Avenue where motorists can go straight onto Chase Avenue, the deputy chief said.

The impact pushed Grenier’s vehicle into a vehicle driven by Henry Gehrling, 23, of Oakland. Gehrling’s vehicle was knocked backward into one driven by Heather Carey, 42, of Waterville, according to Rumsey. Gehrling and Carey were at the stop sign on Chase Avenue.

One person was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center with minor injuries, but Waterville Fire Capt. Jeff Brazier declined to say who.

None of the vehicles was considered a total loss, Rumsey said.
