Two drivers escaped injury Feb. 11, following a crash in Lincolnville Center around 9:30 a.m.

After turning around in the parking lot of Lincolnville Boat Club (formerly Lincolnville Fire Station) to head east, Tammy Marr, 28, of Lincolnville was pulling onto Route 52 in her 2002 Ford Excursion. Due to impaired visibility caused by high snow banks Marr was unable to see a west-bound 2001 Toyota Camry driven by Anita Reynolds, 60, of Lincolnville and the vehicles collided, according to Lincolnville Police Chief Ron Young.

Lincolnville police responded to the accident and Lincolnville Fire Department assisted with diverting traffic from the scene while the vehicles were cleared from the roadway. Both vehicles sustained some damage in the incident. Young said no charges are expected be filed.

Reynolds' vehicle was towed by Pooler's Towing of Belfast and Marr drove her vehicle from the scene after the spare tire was put on, Young said.

Young said neither party involved required medical attention. He advises drivers to use extra caution as high snow banks can make it difficult to see oncoming traffic.
