FARMINGTON — A Wilton teenager was ticketed for speeding after he lost control of his sport utility vehicle in a three-vehicle crash Monday afternoon on Knowlton Corner Road in Farmington.

Aaron Gagnon, 17, was driving a 1997 Jeep Cherokee west toward U.S. Route 2 when it crossed the centerline and clipped the rear end of a 2004 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Marsha Thomas, 40, of Farmington, according to Bonnie Pomeroy, a spokeswoman for Farmington police.

After the collision at about 2 p.m., Thomas crossed the centerline in her SUV and struck a 1998 Honda Civic, being driven west by Shane O’Neil, 17, of Farmington, Pomeroy said. Gagnon’s Jeep veered off the road before stopping short of tress that line the road.

Gagnon was cited at the scene for imprudent speed in the posted 45 mph zone, Pomeroy said, citing police reports. Reports didn’t list how fast he was driving, she said.

Thomas was the only person injured in the crash, suffering minor facial injuries that didn’t require a trip to the hospital. The three drivers and Brian Durrell, the passenger in O’Neill’s car, were all wearing seat belts, Pomeroy said.

Pomeroy said the speeding was the only factor in the crash and she didn’t know details about Durrell.
