Fields and his wife Anna were both transported to Waldo County General Hospital by North East Mobile Health Services with unspecified, non-life threatening injuries.

Lincolnville — A two vehicle crash on Belfast Road (Route 52) in Lincolnville sent one driver and his passenger to the hospital June 19.

Approximately 1:40 p.m., Sonny Fields and his wife Anna of Lincolnville were headed toward Belfast near Vancycle Road in their late model Buick sedan and attempted to pass a slow moving Ford Ranger pick-up truck.

The male driver of the truck, Stacy Howie, 45, of Belfast then tried to turn left into a driveway, striking the Fields' car and forcing them off the roadway, where the car then struck a tree.

Fields' car sustained serious damage to the front end and both the driver and passenger were transported to Waldo County General Hospital by North East Mobile Health Services with unspecified, non-life threatening injuries.

The Fields were both wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

The Ford Ranger sustained driver-side damage.

The Howie refused medical treatment and was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and taken to Waldo County Jail by Deputy Jordan Tozier.

A section of Belfast Road was closed to one lane of traffic for approximately 30 minutes, while emergency crews from Lincolnville Fire Department and North East Mobile Health Services remained on scene until law enforcement arrived.

The Driver's Handbook states that you "should not pass" when there is a solid line on your side. But passing with a solid line is not illegal in Maine.

There is no double line law in Maine!

In Rockland there are no speed limits instead we have speed suggestions. You can go five even ten over the posted suggestion and they won't stop you. On South Main they don't even bother to slow down for pedestrians in a crosswalk. Today's policemen are busy being relationship counselors.
