Vehicle collides with Lincolnville residence
Lincolnville — Nov. 12, around 3:30 p.m., Ray Lovejoy of Everett, Mass., was sitting in the living room of his seasonal home in Lincolnville watching television when a vehicle crashed into his residence.
The 22-year-old driver from Hermon was on his way home from work in Camden, said Waldo County Sheriff's Deputy Arthur Smith. The vehicle was headed from Route 1 via Slab City Road toward Route 52 when it left the roadway, struck Lovejoy's Ford F-150 pick-up parked in front of the residence, knocking it on its side, and finally came to rest against the structure, Lovejoy said.
"They go too fast around this turn," he added.
Smith said the driver did not recall the moments leading up to the crash but did not show signs of impairment. The driver was able to exit the vehicle without extrication and was transported to Waldo County General Hospital. Police remained on scene to orchestrate a reconstruction of the accident at of 4:15 p.m. Nov. 12.
Lovejoy said he heard the crash and called 911 for help. A window was broken and Lovejoy said he suspects the wall cracked from the impact.
"I'm just concerned about my house and truck," he said.
Lovejoy was alone in the residence at the time of the accident but said his wife is on her way to Maine from Massachusetts.
Lincolnville fire, Camden First Aid Association and Waldo County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene of the crash.
