Waterville police investigating crash in which alcohol may have been factor

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — Police are investigating a single-vehicle accident early Thursday morning in which alcohol is believed to be a factor.

Around 1 a.m., a resident of Marston Road heard a loud crash that occurred at the intersection of County and Marston roads, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

When police arrived, they found an unoccupied car upside down in a ditch, empty beer cans and blood around the vehicle, Rumsey said.

The occupants, Dylan McNamara, 23, of Belgrade and Natasha Guessregen, 26, of Waterville, were located a short distance away on a lawn on Streamview Drive, according to Rumsey.

While the pair’s injuries were minor, police learned that McNamara had bail conditions prohibiting him from drinking, so police summoned him for violating conditions of release. Rumsey said police believe Guessregen was driving the vehicle.

The deputy chief said police are awaiting the results of blood tests before deciding whether or not to pursue charges. The duo were treated for their injuries at Thayer Hospital.
