MECHANIC FALLS — Police on Monday morning said at least one person remains hospitalized after a two vehicle crash last week on Route 124.

Sgt. A. James Daigle said it appears Adrien Ainaire, 17, of Mechanic Falls, failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign to Kolby Woods, 21, of Minot, last Wednesday just before 3:30 p.m.

“Currently there are conflicting stories of whether he stopped at the stop sign or not,” Daigle said. “He attempted to make a left off Bucknam Street onto North Main Street (Route 124) in front of Kolby.”

Ainaire had four passengers; one adult in the front seat, his sister, Casey Ainaire, and three juveniles in the backseat, including an infant. All three juveniles were properly buckled in, Daigle said. The Honda Civic Adrien was driving belonged to his sister.

Woods had one passenger, Alexander LeBlanc, in his Toyota Highlander.

The infant was taken by LifeFlight to Maine Medical Center in Portland and Ainaire was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, then also flown to MMC.

Daigle said Ainaire remained hospitalized on Monday. He said he had been told that the infant’s condition was stable but could not confirm if the child was still in the hospital.

A hospital spokesman had no details on Ainaire’s condition.

Lewiston police, the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office and Maine State Police helped reconstruct the accident. It remains under investigation by Mechanic Falls police. No charges or summons have yet been issued.
