ELLSWORTH — Two passenger cars and a van collided near Autumn Road on Route 1A Oct. 9, but the four occupants escaped any injuries. All were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.

Police said Victor K. Mubang, 64, of Machias was traveling north on Route 1A in his 2019 passenger van when he crossed the centerline and struck a 2017 Mazda sedan driven by Carrie A. Emerson, 49, of Bar Harbor. Emerson was traveling south on Route 1A.

After hitting Emerson’s Mazda, Mubang’s van continued into oncoming traffic, striking a 2020 Chevrolet sedan driven by Cristian J. Juan, 41, of Ballwin, Mont., and carrying passenger Monique W. Bruinsma, 40. No address was provided for Bruinsma.

Juan was driving behind Emerson and swerved to avoid Mubang’s van, but his car was struck on the passenger side and spun out along the northbound travel lane before coming to a stop.
