Winterport collision remains under investigation; cause likely next week

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WINTERPORT, Maine — Sheriff’s deputies are still not clear what caused a collision on Monroe Road that sent two people to the hospital Thursday morning.

Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office said Friday afternoon police have interviewed both drivers and witnesses, but have yet to determine a cause.

“It’ll probably be until the middle of next week until we are able to put the whole thing to rest,” Trundy said. “We still have a couple of things we want to check on before we finalize what the cause may have been.”

Trundy said all parties involved are cooperating with the investigation.

The accident, which happened about a mile west of the intersection with Route 69, sent Timothy White, 47, of Frankfort and Bethany Henneberry, 19, of Winterport to Eastern Maine Medical Center with back injuries, while White also suffered a broken leg.

A hospital spokeswoman said Friday evening that Henneberry was in fair condition. No information on White’s condition was available.

The sport utility vehicle White was driving and the gray sedan operated by Henneberry were both demolished in the accident.
