Friendship — Residents in Friendship and the surrounding area have been concerned as Bonnie Robinson, 70, of Seabreeze Farm continues the struggle to recover from injuries caused by an Oct. 2 crash.

Robinson was initially taken to a local hospital following the crash, but had to be flown to Maine Medical Center in Portland for injuries, including damage to her thyroid. She has now been moved to Maine General in Augusta, where she is recovering, according to family members.

The crash was at about 10 a.m. on Friendship Road, Waldoboro near Brookside Cemetery.

Robinson had been driving south in her 2002 Chevy Suburban when her vehicle was struck from behind by a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Marshall Perfetto, 40, also of Friendship.

Perfetto's vehicle rolled several times before coming to stop, upside down, in the middle of the road. The force of the collision caused Robinson's vehicle to strike a tree.

Perfetto's passenger, his 11-month-old son, was not injured.

Robinson runs Seabreeze Farm on Route 97 with her husband, Brian. Their children and family members have been running the farm while she is in the hospital, making sure the animals, including goats, are cared for.

Robinson is also known in the community, having served as a teacher for years at the Friendship school. She is a member of the Advent Christian Church in Friendship.
