Hancock County Sheriff: Deputies Handle Dispute Between Dedham Girl and Parents

ELLSWORTH — A Dedham girl upset about rules her parents made contacted police to report that she didn’t feel safe with her parents.


Lt. Pat Kane met with the girl and her parents.

“…It is apparent the child was not in danger and was instead upset about the household rules,” said Kane.

A driver passing a car in a no-passing zone struck the car he was passing as well as another car that was emerging from a private drive onto Graytown Road in Sedgwick Saturday, police reported.

Jacob Bowden, 20, of Prospect was driving an unknown vehicle, which swerved and struck the emerging vehicle, a 2005 Ford Taurus operated by Colleen Reed, 39, of Sedgwick, Deputy Luke Gross said.
