An Arundel man involved in a crash that Buxton police said may have been caused by drag racing has been charged with driving to endanger.

Police say 26-year-old Brandon Buzynski was the driver of a Dodge Neon that was involved in a serious crash on Parker Farm Road on Monday. After an interview with police on Tuesday, Buzynski was issued a summons for driving to endanger.

The car driven by Buzynski and a 2005 Chrysler 300 driven by 56-year-old Thomas Dewitt of Buxton were both traveling east on Parker Farm Road immediately before the crash, according to police.

Dewitt was ahead of Buzynski, but apparently lost control, left the roadway and struck a guide wire support pole, Buxton Police Chief Troy A. Cline said this week. The pole detached from the ground and went airborne, landed in the roadway and struck the hood of the Neon, Cline said. Dewitt was pinned inside his car.

The two passengers in Buzynski’s car were not injured.

The speed limit in that stretch of Parker Farm Road is 40 miles per hour, Cline said. Witnesses reported that both cars were traveling at a high rate of speed, but police have not determined yet how fast they were going. Cline said Dewitt was rushed to Maine Medical Center and has undergone one surgery and has serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Buzynski is scheduled to appear in Biddeford District Court on Aug. 8.
