FAIRFIELD — Police say they aren’t sure what caused a head-on crash Tuesday morning on Norridgewock Road, but say the glare of sunlight may have been a factor.

The collision occurred around 8:15 a.m. and involved a 2004 Chrysler PT cruiser and a 1992 International dump truck for Ranger Construction. Douglas Libby, 61, of Madison, was driving the Chrysler south while Ricky Nash, 47, of Fairfield, was driving the dump truck north, said Capt. Paul St. Amand.

Libby was taken to Inland Hospital in Waterville and treated for a dislocated shoulder, according to Fairfield dispatcher Jeanne Kempers. He was out of the hospital by the afternoon. His car was destroyed during the crash.

The dump truck was badly damaged, but is fixable, said Rick Littlefield, a wrecker driver at Boulet’s Truck Service, which removed the truck from the scene. The front axle broke loose, which caused a lot of expensive damage to the vehicle, and the starter also ripped.
