THOMASTON — Thomaston police responded to two vehicle crashes on Old County Road this week, including a head-on crash.

The first crash occurred shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18. Police Chief Tim Hoppe said a 2004 Ford cargo van operated by Breana Little, 34, of Cushing, was headed west on Old County Road and pulled into the path of a 2006 Toyota Corolla headed east, and driven by Ethan Merry, 23, of Searsmont.

Merry suffered multiple non-life threatening injuries, the chief said.

The chief said charges are likely to be filed against Little.

Both vehicles were destroyed in the crash.

On Friday, Oct. 22 before 10 a.m., a vehicle driven by Austin Pierce, 26, of Cushing, crashed into a utility pole near the intersection of Old County and West Meadow roads, the chief said. He said Pierce had been distracted when he was looking back at his 3-year-old child in the back seat.

There were no serious injuries.

The utility pole that was struck was an old one that had been replaced following a crash earlier this year. Soon after a transformer caught fire, the chief said.

Old County was blocked briefly during both crashes from this week.
