Two people were taken to area hospitals as a result of injuries they sustained in a three-car accident that occurred on Main Street Saturday afternoon, Nov. 26.

According to the police report at the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office, 58-year-old Michael A. Gallant of Searsport was headed south on Main Street in a 1999 Toyota just before noon. Meanwhile, 44-year-old Kimberly Clark of Winterport was traveling north on Main Street in her 2005 Dodge and stopped in traffic to make a left turn onto Mountain View Drive.

At that time, according to the accident report, 30-year-old Paul B. Trask of Winterport was approaching Clark’s vehicle from behind in a 2001 Volvo and ended up striking the back of the Dodge, forcing Clark over the center line and into Gallant’s vehicle.

Clark’s vehicle continued off the road and came to a stop against a guy wire. Trask’s vehicle came to rest several hundred feet north of the intersection, against a sidewalk, in the southbound lane.

Waldo County Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton said Trask was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor to be treated for his injuries, which according to the accident report may have included broken bones in his legs. The accident report stated Trask had exceeded the posted speed limit prior to the crash, and Trafton said police would be issuing Trask a summons for failure to provide proof of insurance.

Trafton said Clark was taken by Stockton Springs Ambulance personnel to a local hospital to be checked out, but there was no indication in the accident report specifying which hospital Clark was taken to for treatment. The accident report stated that Clark was complaining of back pain after the accident.

Gallant and his passenger, 57-year-old Cynthia Gallant, both escaped the accident unharmed, according to the report.
