ELLSWORTH — Six people were uninjured Sunday after two cars collided on the access road to the new Branch Lake boat launch.
According to a police report, 55-year-old Alireza Aghamoosa of Orono was headed toward the boat launch on the access road in a Buick sedan around 2:45 p.m.
Aghamoosa “lost control on ice that ran the span of the road into the parking lot” at the end of the road. The car went first into the ditch, and then hit the front end of a Chevrolet pickup that was stopped at a stop sign.
The truck was driven by 39-year-old Jason R. Hanna of Sullivan. Neither Hanna nor his two passengers, a 6-year-old boy and a 4-year-old boy, were injured.
Aghamoosa and her two passengers, a 42-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy, were all uninjured as well.
Officer James Gillway, in his report, said Aghamoosa confirmed that her vehicle had slid down the hill when she lost control of it.
“This hill was covered in ice and was not maintained properly by the state of Maine,” Gillway concluded.
