WATERVILLE — Two people were sent to the hospital Saturday morning after one driver’s car rear-ended another’s car on Main Street.

Waterville police Sgt. Alden Weigelt, who was briefly at the scene before going to respond to a different call, said as one car was stopped near the McDonald’s restaurant on Main Street around 11:30 a.m., another crashed into the rear end of it. Weigelt said the driver of the first car reported having minor neck pain from whiplash from being hit. The driver who crashed into the other car had abdominal pain as a result of the airbag deploying in the crash. Weigelt said the second car sustained the most damage.

One driver went to Inland Hospital and the other went to Thayer Center for Health.

“It was just a busy time of day on a Saturday in front of the McDonald’s,” Weigelt said.

Two state troopers were in the area and helped direct traffic, so there was not a stoppage of traffic.
