Three injured in Orland collision



ORLAND — A two-vehicle collision on Route 1 in Orland Wednesday injured three people, who were taken to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Lt. Corey Bagley said the crash occurred when a westbound vehicle, which was turning left into a local business, struck the front driver’s side of an eastbound car. The collision caused both vehicles to spin in the roadway and come to a stop, blocking traffic on Route 1.

Roberta Mann of Orland was driving the westbound vehicle, which struck a 1997 Jaguar XK8 operated by Leslie Hardware, 71, of Silver Spring, Md., the lieutenant said.

Hardware had head and leg injuries. His passenger, Maureen Stawick, 67, also of Silver Spring, suffered a leg injury.

Mann was treated for chest and leg injuries.

Bucksport Ambulance and Northern Light Ambulance Service took all three to EMMC.

The Orland Fire Department handled traffic control and clean-up from the crash. The Maine State Police also assisted.
