Warren man charged following collision
Rockport — A Warren man was charged with operating after suspension following a two-car crash in Rockport around 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24.
Nicholas Saindon, 22, of Warren was traveling south on Commercial Street in Rockport in a 2001 Toyota Corolla when he struck a 2009 Toyota RAV 4 operated by Heaven Bartlett, 19, of Camden, according to a police report. Bartlett was traveling east across Commercial Street from the stop sign at the intersection of Main and Commercial streets when the accident occurred, the report states. Rockport Police Officer Dana Smith said Bartlett did not see the oncoming vehicle when she decided to proceed from the stop sign.
Saindon hit Bartlett's vehicle in the area of the rear tire, Smith said.
Bartlett was traveling alone; Saindon had a passenger, Brittany Morse, 26. All three refused medical treatment at the scene.
Smith said initially Morse was said to be the driver of the Corolla; however, it became apparent Saindon was operating the vehicle at the time of the crash based on witness statements.
Saindon was also issued a ticket for an insurance violation, Smith said. Both vehicles were towed from the scene by Camden Exxon.
Camden First Aid, Rockport Fire Department and Rockport Police responded to the call.
