A Winterport woman was hurt in a Thursday, Nov. 7, crash that police blamed on the non-functional left turn turn signal in the van she was operating at the time of the accident.

Amy Edwards, 33, of Winterport, was transported via Winterport Ambulance Service to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor after she complained of back pain after the accident, which occurred on Back Winterport Road just before 8 a.m.

According to the accident report at the Waldo County Sheriff's Department, 68-year-old Michael Bruehl, of Winterport, was traveling north on Cole's Corer Road in a 2014 Mercedes Benz. Bruehl was following behind Edwards, who was driving a 2007 Chrysler van.

The report stated Edwards went to turn left at an intersection, but her left turn signal was not working. Bruehl told police he thought Edwards was turning right where only the passengers side brake light on the van was functional. Bruehl started passing Edwards on the left side and the two vehicles collided.

Bruehl was not injured, but his vehicle was towed from the scene due to front-end damage. Edwards' van sustained minor damage to the front drivers side quarter panel.
