Fort Fairfield teen involved in head-on crash remains in critical condition

By Jen Lynds, BDN Staff

EASTON, Maine — A 19-year-old Fort Fairfield woman remains in critical condition at a Bangor hospital three days after suffering life-threatening injuries in a head-on crash on Route 1A.

Abigail Ladner is still being cared for at Eastern Maine Medical Center, where she was flown after the Sunday afternoon crash, a hospital spokesman said Wednesday.

Ladner was southbound in a 2004 Honda sedan at about 4:25 p.m Sunday, when a northbound 2008 Toyota pickup, driven by 67-year-old Barry Belyea of Portland, partially crossed the centerline into her path, according to police.

The two vehicles collided head on at the intersection of Route 1A and Lamoreau Road in Easton, said Maine State Police Lt. John Cote.

Belyea suffered minor injuries from the crash and was treated at The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle and released.

Cote said that speed and alcohol were not considered factors at this point, and Trooper Rob Flynn continues to investigate the accident.
