No injuries in Bucksport Road crash



ELLSWORTH — No one was injured in an early afternoon crash on the Bucksport Road on Thursday, said Ellsworth Police Cpl. Shawn Merchant.

Merchant said the crash had initially been reported as a head-on collision and that he was glad it hadn’t been worse.

The collision occurred around 1:30 p.m. when a truck with the NewLand Nursery and Landscaping Center logo on the side was making a left onto the Christian Ridge Road and was struck by a pickup truck turning left onto the Bucksport Road. The NewLand Nursery truck was not damaged, Merchant said, but the pickup truck had to be towed from the scene due to extensive damage to the front.

Merchant said the driver of the pickup “didn’t see her,” referring to the woman driving the NewLand Nursery truck.
