Ice delivery truck rear ends Oldsmobile on Route 1
Lincolnville — Three people involved in a two-vehicle collision in Lincolnville escaped serious injury early Thursday morning.
Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office said the crash was reported at 6:45 a.m., May 22, after a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero was attempting to turn left off of Route 1 south of Lincolnville Beach. As the vehicle was waiting for traffic to clear in order to make the turn, an ice delivery truck driven by Arthur Archie, 22, who was driving south on Route 1 as well, was unable to stop and crashed into the back of the Oldsmobile.
Trundy said he and Deputy Wiley McVety responded to the two-vehicle crash.
The force of the collision pushed the Oldsmobile into a ditch, Trundy said.
The driver of the Oldsmobile, Stephen Cassidy, 27, of Citrus Springs, Fla., and his passenger, whose name was not available, suffered minor injuries as a result of the collision. Trundy said Cassidy and his passenger were contractors who were in the area performing some construction work at a residence in the town, he said.
Trundy said Archie did not suffer any injuries and his truck sustained only minor front-end damage. The Oldsmobile sustained significant rear-end damage, Trundy said.
No charges are expected to be filed, he said.
