WATERVILLE — A Benton woman was injured Friday after the car she was driving collided with another car on College Avenue.

Heather Wadsworth, 31, was driving a 2005 Ford Focus east on Oak Street and turned north on College Avenue when the Focus collided with a 2012 Toyota heading south on College Avenue, said police Sgt. Dan Goss.

Wadsworth was taken by Delta ambulance to Thayer Center for Health on North Street after the accident, which was reported at 12:18 p.m., Goss said. She was later released from the hospital, according to a hospital spokesman.

The driver of the Toyota, Skyler Veilleux, 23, of Skowhegan, was not injured in the crash, according to Goss.

Both vehicles likely were destroyed in the accident, which was investigated by Officer Chase Fabian, Goss said.

At the scene, the Focus was near a telephone pole in the southbound lane of College Avenue, where it intersects with Oak Street. The front of the Focus was a twisted mass of metal and the car’s front bumper had flown across to the northbound lane where rubble was strewn all over the road. The front of the Toyota also was smashed in.

As hail pelted the avenue and sidewalk in front of Ace Tire Auto Sales & Service, firefighters worked to clean up the debris and vehicle fluids in the road. Goss said no charges were filed in the accident, which occurred on a busy stretch of College Avenue.

Oak Street also is a busy street which connects College Avenue with Main Street.
