ROCKLAND — Obstructed visibility due to a roadblock construction sign resulted in a two-vehicle accident, in Rockland, Sunday, sending three people to the hospital.

According to Rockland Police, Denise Dalton-Martell, 70, of Massachusetts, pulled into the intersection at Thomaston and Main streets just as Dylen Mahonen, 21, of Rockland, was traveling south on South Main Street.

Dalton-Martell allegedly did not see Mahonen’s Chevy pickup as Mahonen drove through the construction zone near Maritime Farms. 

Having been stopped at the stop sign at Crescent Street, facing west, Dalton-Martell, proceeded to drive into the intersection.  

Dylen's truck crashed into the passenger side of Dalton-Martell's car, sending the truck onto the porch steps of 98 and 100 South Main Street house.   

Denise's husband, Robert Martell, was trapped in the car on the passenger side and was extricated by Rockland Fire and EMS. 

All three went to Pen Bay Medical Center for complaints of pain.

Both vehicles were totaled and towed by Best Rates Towing.



ROCKLAND — A pickup truck involved in a two-vehicle crash narrowly missed heavily damaging a house in Rockland despite knocking over a railing.

Just after noon, Sunday, June 16, the truck and a second car collided at Thomaston and Main streets, a four-way intersection which has been serving as a detour route for northbound construction traffic.

The truck came to a halt next to 100 Main Street with the car at its side.

Rockland firefighters used extrication equipment to remove a passenger-side door from the car before removing the passenger. That passenger was then transported to Pen Bay Medical Center.

A second person was also transported.
