SKOWHEGAN — Speed and failing to yield to traffic were deemed factors in a two-vehicle crash Sunday that sent a pregnant woman to the hospital with minor injuries, police said.

Skowhegan Police Chief David Bucknam said in an email that police received the report of a crash on Madison Avenue on Sunday around 3:30 p.m.

Rishi Kapoor, 20, of Skowhegan was driving a 2014 Chevy Cruze and heading north on Madison Avenue when, according to police, he struck the back end of a 2018 Dodge Ram driven by Joshua Horton, 22, of Madison. Horton was traveling south and turning right onto Cleveland Avenue when the vehicle was struck.

The speed limit is 25 mph, Bucknam said.

The Chevy sustained heavy front-end damage while the impact tore off a rear tire of the Dodge.

Kapoor’s passenger, Tiera Evans, 20, of Skowhegan was taken to Redington-Fairview General Hospital to be treated for shoulder pain, Bucknam said.

“Tiera also advised she was pregnant,” Bucknam said.

Bucknam added that he spoke to Evans on Monday and she had been released from the hospital the day of the crash with minor injuries and “no pregnancy complications, according to her.”

Speed and failure to yield appear to be factors in the Sunday crash. No charges were filed by police.
