The investigation results into a fatal head-on crash in Rockport that claimed the life of a 26-year-old Hope woman showed the driver who survived drove into the oncoming lane. This incident occurred earlier this year.

The investigation has been turned over to the district attorney's office to determine whether criminal charges will result.

The Feb. 17 crash occurred shortly after 6 p.m. near Rocky Pond on Route 17. Killed in the head-on crash was Elizabeth Sherfey. Sherfey was driving a 2004 Toyota Matrix westbound.

At the same time, a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica operated by Darreyl Wright, 43, of Union, was driving east towards Rockland.

An affidavit was filed March 15 in the Knox County court by Rockport Police Sgt. James Moore to obtain a search warrant for Wright's medical records from the evening of the crash when Wright was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. Moore led the investigation.

The affidavit was released May 13 by the court.

Sgt. Moore spoke with Wright at the crash scene and he told the officer he was having trouble remembering what happened, and believes he hit his head in the crash. Wright then told Sgt. Moore he was driving to Hannaford in Rockland and recalled the other vehicle was in his lane, the affidavit stated.

The sergeant said Wright appeared slightly disoriented and confused. The officer said there was no smell of intoxicating liquor from Wright's breath.

Rockport Officer Antonio Del Vecchio was assigned to go to Pen Bay on the night of the crash to interview the occupants of the vehicles. Wright told Officer Del Vecchio he remembers the other vehicle being in his lane, and then the two vehicles struck head-on, according to the affidavit.

But a vehicle reconstruction report by State Police Sgt. Darren Foster and provided to Rockport police March 3 determined Wright's vehicle crossed the center line of the road, causing the head-on crash, the affidavit stated.

Wright was treated and released from the hospital. A passenger in Sherfey's vehicle Leeman Webb, 22, of Limestone, was injured, but the injuries were not considered life threatening, police said on the night of the crash.

Court records do not indicate what Wright's medical records revealed. Camden/Rockport Police Chief Randy Gagne said May 13 he would hold off comment until the district attorney's office complete its review of the case.

On May 11, Assistant District Attorney Lynn Madison said he believes there will be criminal charges from the incident. He did not comment further on what charges were expected to be filed.
