By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

CORINTH, Maine — An 81-year-old Bradford man was taken to the hospital early Wednesday evening for treatment of injuries he suffered in a T-bone type crash.

Arnold Hanson was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment of severe facial lacerations, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Fitch said. Information about Hanson’s medical condition was not immediately available but Fitch said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening and that Hanson appeared stable at the accident scene.

The accident happened shortly after 5 p.m., when Hanson made a left turn out of the parking lot of Whitney’s Family Supermarket at 689 Main St. and drove into the path of a Toyota Avalon driven by David McDermott, 53, of Dover-Foxcroft, Fitch said.

McDermott’s car and Hanson’s Honda Civic, which was struck broadside, both were destroyed in the crash, Fitch said.
