WALDOBORO – A driver involved in a two-vehicle crash in Waldoboro, Friday, Aug. 27, was eventually transported to a major hospital by LifeFlight of Maine.
Following a 1:16 p.m. report of a crash at the intersection of Noyes and Old Augusta roads, in Waldoboro, personnel from Waldoboro and Warren fire departments, along with Waldoboro EMS, worked to extricate Shawn Brewer, 38.
Brewer was pinned inside his silver 2009 Chevy Tahoe, which was sitting on its passenger side against an oak tree when Waldoboro Officer Jeff Fuller arrived on scene, according to police reports. Brewer is suspected to have been the operator of the Tahoe at the time of the crash, according to Fuller.
He was transported from the scene to Miles Memorial Hospital and then flown by Lifeflight of Maine to Maine Medical Center, in Portland.
According to police, Officer Fuller learned upon arrival that a female was in the Tahoe and had left the scene prior to police and EMS arrival.
The female later returned to the accident scene, according to Fuller.
“She appeared to have minor injuries – cuts and scrapes to her legs – and was seen by EMS but was not transported,” Fuller said.
The other vehicle involved in the accident was a 1990 Chevy postal truck. That vehicle had minor damage to the rear bumper. It was operated by Stephen Farnum, 71, who was not injured in the crash, according to Fuller.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s office and Sagadahoc Sheriff’s Office arrived to reconstruct the accident. The vehicles involved were towed and impounded pending further investigation.
The investigation is ongoing at this time.
