ST. JOHN PLANTATION, Maine — A St. Francis teen escaped serious injury on Monday afternoon when she was involved in a three-vehicle crash in St. John Plantation.
Mistie Albert, 18, was westbound on Route 161 in her 2001 Nissan car just after 2 p.m. when she lost control on the slippery roadway and crossed over into the oncoming lane, Maine State Police Sgt. Josh Haines said Tuesday in a press release.
Albert’s vehicle first struck a 2003 Ford truck driven by Kenneth Roy, 55, of Wallagrass. The Nissan then hit a 2010 Western Star tractor-trailer driven by 49-year-old Todd Levesque of Wallagrass.
Albert suffered unspecified injuries and was taken by a family member to seek medical treatment, according to the release. Albert’s air bags deployed and all three individuals were wearing their seat belts, Haines reported. Albert and Roy’s vehicles needed to be towed from the scene.
The crash was investigated by Trooper Dan Marquis.
State police encourage Mainers to drive with caution and allow extra time for slow travel on the slippery winter roads.
