Washington — Injuries were sustained in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Rockland Road and Waldoboro Road in Washington at 11:45 a.m. Friday, July 6.

According to a press release from Sgt. Lance Mitchell of the Knox County Sheriff's Office,  Paul McClay, 31, of Oregon, was driving a silver 2007 Honda Odyssey east on Augusta Road in Washington during a period of heavy rain.

Lance Taylor, 78, of Washington, was stopped at the intersection of Waldoboro Road heading north in his silver 2010 Subaru Forester when he stated he did not see McClay's vehicle.

Witnesses on scene stated that the van's headlights were not on, making it very difficult to see it, resulting in Taylor's vehicle striking the passenger's side of the van with substantial damage to the van.

Of the five passengers in the van, three were seen on site by Waldoboro and Union EMS. One passenger in the van was transported to Maine General in Augusta for a complaint of head pain. She was extricated from the vehicle by Washington Fire Department crews.

Washington Fire also assisted with traffic control and cleanup. One vehicle was towed from the scene by Hometown Towing due to the damage.
