ARUNDEL, Maine — York County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating a Saturday night accident involving three vehicles and 11 individuals, mainly teenagers, according to Sheriff William King.
The crash on Campground Road was reported at 9:45 p.m., and the youngsters had been returning from Gooches Beach, where several allegedly had been drinking alcohol, according to King.
The vehicles involved were a GMC pickup driven by Katelynn Perkins, 19, of Biddeford, who was carrying four passengers; a Dodge pickup operated by Tyler Spang, whose age and hometown weren’t available, carrying one passenger; and a Chevy Trailblazer operated by Olivia Madore, 19, of Arundel, who was carrying three passengers, King said.
All three vehicles had been traveling west on Campground Road and were passing each other in a no-passing zone, the sheriff said.
The crash occurred when Perkins’ pickup sideswiped Spang’s pickup, causing Spang to collide with Madore, King said. Perkins subsequently lost control and left the road, his pickup rolling over several times before coming to rest on its roof in a swamp.
While none of the victims required hospitalization, Perkins was summoned for driving to endanger and illegal transportation of alcohol, King said.
