Accidents

Nov. 16, an accident on Route 1 in Edgecomb involved Joseph L. Benner, 19, of Rockland; Owen S. Nickerson, 18, of Phippsburg; Matthew R. Grotton, 45, of Liberty and Michelle D. Kaler, 51, of Waldoboro. Benner was operating his 2014 Dodge Ram 1500, with attached trailer, northbound on Route 1. As he crossed the bridge onto Davis Island, the nut on his trailer hitch dislodged and the ball and trailer he was hauling became detached from his vehicle. As a result, the loose trailer then struck Nickerson’s 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, which was traveling southbound. The Nickerson vehicle then struck Grotton’s 2021 Chevrolet Spark head-on, and Kaler’s 2018 Subaru Outback struck Grotton’s vehicle from behind. Michaud was the investigating officer.
