Searsport police have charged a 74-year-old Hampden woman in connection with a property damage accident Friday, Nov. 15, after an investigation revealed she was at the wheel of a vehicle that struck an unattended vehicle on Sears Island Road.

Elizabeth Squadrow was charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident and failure to notify the owner or operator of an unattended vehicle of a property damage accident after the department concluded its investigation of the crash.

Searsport Police Chief Dick LaHaye said the accident apparently occurred as Squadrow was driving past the parked vehicle, and the unattended vehicle had visible damage as a result of the collision.

"The damage went from the front bumper all the way down to the rear of the car," said LaHaye.

LaHaye said when police interviewed Squadrow they were unable to determine whether Squadrow was aware that she struck the vehicle when she left the scene of the crash.

"That is unclear," said LaHaye.

LaHaye said the owner of the unattended vehicle reported that the car had just had body work done to it just prior to the incident involving Squadrow's vehicle.
