Kelly Bradstreet, 53, of Newcastle was stopped on Route 1, waiting to turn onto North Pond Road in a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am.
Christoph Neugebauer, 35, Bronxville, N.Y., who was also traveling north on Route 1 in a tan Ford Explorer, admitted to taking his eyes off the road and when he looked back around he could not avoid running into the rear end of Bradstreet, said Knox County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Tim Carroll in a statement Sept. 2.
Bradstreet was transported to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport by ambulance for back pain. Her vehicle was a total loss.
There were four passengers in Bradstreet's vehicle. Todd Bradstreet, 34, address unknown, was in the front seat. He was transported to PBMC with complaints of hip and knee pain.
