HOPE, Maine — A local man was summoned on a driving to endanger charge after a crash injured him and destroyed his vehicle on Monday evening.
Terrence Crabtree, 54, was traveling east about 7:30 p.m. on Hatchet Mountain Road behind a vehicle that he said was going very slow, according to a news release from Knox County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Tim Carroll. Crabtree attempted to pass and lost control of his car on a curve, Carroll reported. The vehicle then skidded across the road and rolled into some trees.
The Rockport extrication team and Hope Fire Department went to the scene of the crash to remove Crabtree from the crumpled 2009 Chevrolet Aveo.
Crabtree suffered minor cuts, bruises and a possible broken arm, according to Carroll. He was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport by Union Ambulance.
Sgt. James Moore issued Crabtree a summons for driving to endanger.
