The Waterville Police Department earlier this week investigated a case involving an Oakland town plow truck that struck a woman on Main Street in that town, sending her to the hospital with a cut to the head, according to officials.

Because the crash involved a town public works truck driven by a municipal employee, Oakland police did not investigate it, per police policy, according to Oakland Deputy police Chief Rick Stubbert.

Maj. Jason Longley of the Waterville Police Department said Wednesday that the accident occurred at 8:30 a.m. Monday when a town truck was plowing in front of a bakery on Main Street in Oakland and spraying sand there.

“He was sanding the roadway and was backing up in a row of parking spaces,” Longley said. “There was a pedestrian walking behind the truck and it backed into her.”

The woman was taken to Thayer Center for Health in Waterville with a cut to the head, Longley said, though he said he did not have information beyond that.

“I would assume that she was treated and released,” he said.

Longley said orange and green lights were activated and flashing atop the truck when it was sanding. He said he did not have the name of the truck driver, but the accident report contained a note about what the driver said afterward.

“He just said that he did not see the pedestrian,” Longley said.

No charges were filed, he said.
