Four people were taken by ambulance to Waldo County General Hospital to be treated for injuries they sustained as the result of an accident that occurred on Route 3 Saturday morning, Sept. 3.

According to Waldo County Chief Deputy Bob Keating, Douglas G. Brown, 59, of Benton and his three passengers, 57-year-old Sherry Brown, 20-year-old Wade Cooper and 20-year-old Libby McDonald were all transported to the Belfast hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the 2002 Dodge pickup they were riding in struck a passenger car.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Route 3 and the Liberty Inn Road at about 11:25 a.m., according to the accident report.

The report stated that 72-year-old Paul Leach of Liberty pulled out of a parking lot onto Route 3 in a 1998 Ford and did not see Brown, who was headed west on Route 3. Brown reportedly struck Leach’s vehicle on the driver’s-side front corner, sending the car into a spin. Leach’s car then struck a sign, causing additional damage to the vehicle.

Brown’s truck, which was towing a 1987 FTWD tag-along camper at the time of the collision, careened into the ditch as the camper went into a spin. The truck reportedly came to rest on its roof in the ditch. The camper, which became detached from the truck due to the impact, came off its frame and landed right-side up in the ditch next to the pickup.

Leach was not seriously hurt in the crash, according to the accident report.

All vehicles involved, including the camper, were totaled.
