One person hospitalized after Winthrop crash

WINTHROP — One person was taken to the hospital after a head-on crash Saturday on U.S. Route 202.

Ali S. Kamel, 47, of Lewiston, was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta after complaining of neck pain, said Winthrop Police Capt. Ryan Frost.

The second driver, 74-year-old Leslie Cimpher of Farmingdale, was not injured.

The crash occurred around 12:30 p.m. Saturday just west of the Manchester town line. Cimpher was driving his 1998 Toyota four door west on U.S. 202 when the car drifted off the right side of the road. Frost said Cimpher over-corrected and veered back across his lane and into the east-bound lane where his car hit head-on with Kamel’s 2010 Nissan sport utility vehicle.

Both men were wearing seatbelts, Frost said.

Police were not sure what caused Cimpher to lose control of his vehicle.

There are no charges in connection with the crash.

Saturday’s was the third head-on or near head-on crash this month on U.S. 202 in Winthrop. Three people have been injured and one killed as a result of those crashes.

Slashed tires probed

Augusta police are investigating several complaints of slashed tires that occurred over the weekend.

Augusta police Sgt. Christian Behr said about six vehicles were targeted around Darin Drive and Mount Vernon and Anthony avenues. Almost all the vehicles were parked outside of businesses, Behr said.

Behr wasn’t sure how many tires in total were slashed. The slashings all are believed to have occurred between Friday night and Sunday morning. Police received a complaint Sunday on Mount Vernon Avenue and then three more on Monday morning, including Traction Motor Supplies on Darin Drive, KDT Towing on Leighton Road and Maine Security Surveillance on Anthony Avenue.

Police continue to investigate the slashings.

Behr asked anyone who noticed suspicious activity or with information to call Augusta police dispatchers at 626-2370 ext. 1.

Jay woman hurt in crash

A Jay woman was hurt Monday morning when her car rolled over during a crash on Winthrop Street in Hallowell.

Erin Shea, 18, was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta with what were believed to be non life-threatening injuries, said Hallowell Police Chief Eric Nason.

Shea was driving east, toward Hallowell, when the crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m. near the Balsam Drive intersection where the speed limit is 45 miles-per-hour. Her 2004 Saturn four door skidded out of control on ice and went off the right side of the road. Nason said the car hit the snowbank and rolled over before coming to rest on its wheels.

“It rolled over at least once, possibly twice,” Nason said.

The eastbound lane of Winthrop Street was shut down for about 45 minutes as medics tended to Shea and crews removed the vehicle.

There are no charges.

Two hurt in crash

Two women were hurt when their car rolled over during an early morning crash Saturday on North Road in Mount Vernon.

The driver, 23-year-old Courtney Rogers of Monmouth, suffered what were believed to be minor injuries, said Chief Deputy Ryan Reardon of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office. A passenger, 27-year-old Deidra McKenna, suffered more serious but non life-threatening injuries, Reardon said. Both women were taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

The crash occurred shortly before 2:30 a.m. near the Church Road intersection. Rogers lost control of her 1999 Audi on black ice, Reardon said. The car left the right side of the road, traveled a couple hundred feet down the snow bank and rolled over at least once before coming to rest perpendicular to the road.

There are no charges in the crash.

Woman’s care overturns

A Richmond woman was injured Saturday when her car overturned during a crash on New Road.

Gennifer J. Hoopinggarner, 21, was taken to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick with what were believed to be non life-threatening head and neck injuries, said Richmond Police Chief Scott MacMaster.

The crash occurred just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday as Hoopinggarner drove her Ford Focus on New Road. MacMaster said her car left the road and hit a tree before rolling over.

A police report did not indicate what cause Hoopinggarner’s car to leave the road.
