WISCASSET, Maine — A 50-year-old Nobleboro woman and a 23-year-old Wiscasset man were both injured when their vehicles collided Wednesday morning on Bath Road in Wiscasset.
Aimee Ethier-Bixby, 50, was extricated from her 1995 Oldsmobile by Wiscasset firefighters, according to a news release from Wiscasset Police Chief Troy Cline. She was taken by Wiscasset ambulance to Wiscasset Airport, and from there by Lifeflight of Maine helicopter to an area hospital.
The driver of the second vehicle, 23-year-old Eleazar Disla Cuevas of Wiscasset, was taken to an area hospital by a Wiscasset ambulance for injuries not considered life threatening.
According to Cline, Ethier-Bixby was traveling south on Bath Road near Holbrook Pond at about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday when she lost control of her car and skidded across the centerline and collided head-on with a 2000 Nissan driven by Disla Cuevas. The Nissan landed in a ditch on the northbound side of Bath Road, while the Oldsmobile came to rest in the northbound lane.
The conditions of both drivers were unavailable Wednesday evening. Information about whether either driver had passengers in their vehicles at the time of the collision was not available.
