WASHINGTON — A Presque Isle woman was charged Sept. 26 with several offenses, after police say she ignored the directions of emergency personnel and drove through a closed off crash scene on Route 17 in Washington.

At approximately 6:35 p.m. Sept. 26, while emergency personnel were still working a crash scene, the driver of a 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor disregarded the road closure and directions of emergency personnel and drove through the crash scene, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

The vehicle was stopped by law enforcement as it passed through the scene. During the stop, indicators of contraband were observed and a search, using a police canine, was conducted.

Allyson Adams, 34, of Presque Isle, was charged with failure to stop at a roadblock, operating after suspension, possession of scheduled drugs, failure to display Inspection, displaying improper plates, and failure to produce insurance, according to police.

The charges came as first responders were at the scene of a crash, reported at approximately 5:05 p.m.

The Knox County Regional Communication Center received reports that a pickup truck with a trailer crashed on Route 17 in the area of West Washington Road. The investigation shows that a 2016 Chevy pickup truck, hauling an enclosed utility trailer, was traveling east and crossed the center, went off the roadway into the left hand ditch and struck a utility pole.

The driver, Zachary Rogers, 40, of Hope, was not injured. The vehicle was towed due to disabling damage. The incident is still under investigation. The roadway was closed for approximately three-and-a-half hours to move the vehicle, as well as repair the utility pole.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Knox Communications, Washington Fire Department, Hometown Towing and Central Maine Power.
