Police investigate crash on Route 1 near Calais

CALAIS — Police are investigating a single-vehicle accident Wednesday that left one person slightly injured.

At around 6:20 p.m., Patrick Calder, 16, Jonathan Andrews, 16, Erika Doyle, 15, and Aaron Mitchell, 16, all of Eastport, were traveling north on Route 1 toward Calais near the Carson Road when Calder, the driver, apparently swerved to avoid something in the road.

The 1986 Mercury skidded into the southbound lane. The vehicle spun, struck a rocky ledge and came to rest in the ditch.

Doyle was taken by ambulance to Calais Regional Hospital, where she was treated and released. All four teen-agers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
