Two-vehicle accident sends one to hospital
Rockland — Rockland fire and emergency medical services responded to a two-vehicle accident on Old County Road in Rockland at approximately 8:45 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 4, said Officer James Jillson of the Rockland Police Department.
Patricia Duncan of Camden was driving south on Old County Road when she crossed the center line and struck a vehicle, driven by Leonard Proch of Greenwich, N.Y.
Proch was headed north in a 2006 Mazda and attempted to avoid the collision by veering toward the shoulder of the road. Upon impact, Proch's vehicle struck underbrush and a stone wall, propelling the car onto its roof where it came to rest.
Duncan was unable to explain why she crossed the center line, the officer said.
Proch complained of back pain and was transported by ambulance to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. He was able to walk to the ambulance and will be treated and released, said Jillson.
Duncan was not injured and not transported to the hospital.
The Mazda, driven by Proch was totaled and Duncan's 2004 Pontiac van sustained considerable front-end damage, said Jillson.
