OAKLAND — One woman suffered minor injuries late Monday morning after she tried to make a left turn while in the right lane of Kennedy Memorial Drive and collided with a vehicle next to her, police said.

A little before noon, Ann Davis, 80, of Cambridge, was driving a green Ford Taurus westbound in the far right lane of Kennedy Memorial Drive when she tried to make a left turn onto South Alpine Street, according to Sgt. Tracey Frost of the Oakland Police Department. Driving in the left lane going in the same direction was Shane Gagne of Waterville, with his son Parker, in a red Toyota Rav4. Davis’ car pulled in front of Gagne’s, Frost said, and Gagne couldn’t avoid the collision.

“He must’ve been in her blind spot; she just didn’t see him,” Frost said. “He really tried avoiding her.”

Davis suffered minor cuts and was treated at the scene. Gagne and his son were not injured.

Both vehicles were heavily damaged.

The eastbound lanes on Kennedy Memorial Drive were closed down for about 45 minutes as a towing company removed the two vehicles.

The Oakland Police Department, Oakland Fire Department and Delta Ambulance responded to the incident.
