Two injured in Route 1 crash
Belfast — Two people are being treated at the hospital following a March 10 crash at the intersection of Route 1 and Northport Avenue.
Belfast Police Chief Mike McFadden said the driver of a Dodge Durango pulled into the jug handle on Route 1 shortly before 4 p.m. to cross to Northport Avenue, but failed to see a northbound Toyota passenger car.
The Durango struck the driver's side of the Toyota, pushing the Toyota onto the Northport Avenue median.
McFadden said a passenger in the Durango and the driver of the Toyota were taken to Waldo County General Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Names of those involved were not immediately available.
The Durango, which had some front-end damage, was driven from the scene, while the Toyota was towed because of extensive damage to the driver's side of the vehicle.
McFadden noted the Route 1 and Northport Avenue intersection is one of the more dangerous ones in the city.
"This is a horrible intersection," he said.
Belfast Ambulance and Fire Department assisted at the scene.
