    THOMASTON — Charges are pending after a 2004 Ford van traveling southbound on Old County Road crossed the road and into the path of a passenger car, Monday, Oct. 18.

    According to Thomaston Police Chief Tim Hoppe, police are still pursuing a couple of possibilities as to what caused the van, operated by Breana Little, of Cushing, to collide with the northbound car, operated by Ethan Merry. 

    THOMASTON — Two people were transported to Pen Bay Medical Center, Monday, Oct. 18, 2021 following a two-vehicle crash, just prior to 4 p.m., on Old County Road, in Thomaston.

    Though both vehicles involved in the crash came to a stop on the same side of the road, police and fire personnel closed the stretch between Dexter Street and the Rockland/Thomaston town line entirely to traffic for about 45 minutes.

    Initially, a Rockland fire truck was requested in order to use the City’s extrication equipment. However, prior to Rockland’s arrival, Thomaston firefighters managed to make entry, and Rockland was turned back.

    A Thomaston ambulance and a South Thomaston ambulance each transported the sole occupants of each vehicle. Creek Hill then used to wreckers to simultaneously haul the van and car away.
