Woman injured in 3-vehicle accident in Cornish

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

CORNISH, Maine — One person suffered minor injuries in a three-vehicle accident in York County on Monday.

A juvenile, whose age police did not release, was driving a 1990 Chevrolet pickup on Route 25 westbound shortly before 3 p.m. when the vehicle went around another vehicle that was stopped and preparing to turn right onto Main Street, Chief Deputy William King of the York County Sheriff’s Office said.

After making the pass, the driver of the pickup stopped to turn left onto Level Acres Lane, King said, and James Burt, 53, of Limington, driving a GMC pickup, went around the first turning vehicle but rear-ended the truck driven by the juvenile.

The impact of the collision forced the juvenile’s pickup into the eastbound lanes and into the path of a tractor-trailer operated by Gary Stone, whose age and hometown weren’t available, King said.

Thinking fast, the juvenile accelerated out of the truck’s path, but the big rig struck the bed of the pickup, owned by Jennifer Gendron, 27, of Cornish, who was a passenger in the vehicle, King said.

Gendron was the only one injured in the crash. She was treated for a cut at the scene by Sebago Rescue.

Deputy Gil Hudson, who went to the scene of the crash, commended the driver’s actions in getting out of the direct path of the big rig.

No charges are expected to be filed.
