WARREN — Four people were injured, including two who were taken to the hospital, following a Tuesday afternoon three-vehicle crash on Route 1.

At approximately 3 p.m. May 24, Knox Regional Communications Center received reports of a motor vehicle crash near the intersection of Route 1 and Stirling Road in Warren. A Toyota Camry, operated by Mary Gammon, 89, of Warren, was stopped in the southbound lane of Route 1 waiting to turn left onto the northern entrance of Stirling Road when it was struck by a Toyota Tundra, operated by Wilson Collamore, 46, of Waldoboro, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

The Camry crossed over the northbound lane of Route and ended up on the Stirling Road. The Tundra went right and struck the southbound guardrail, bounced off and went left crossing the centerline, struck a Fusion, operated by James Dorian, 58, of Waldoboro, and ended up in the northbound ditch. The Fusion ended up on the northbound shoulder of Route 1.

Mary Gammon and Collamore were treated and released at the scene for their injuries. Dorian was taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Earl Gammon, a passenger in the Camry, was extracted and taken to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The incident is still under investigation but driver inattention and following too closely are being considered as factors in the crash. All three vehicles sustained significant damage and were towed. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Warren Emergency Medical Services and Fire, Waldoboro EMS, and Oyster River Towing.
