PRESQUE ISLE – One teen-ager was injured Thursday when the car she was driving was involved in a three-vehicle collision on Main Street, according to local police.
Jaime Dyer, 17, of Presque Isle was treated for injuries at The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle and then released, a hospital spokeswoman said Thursday afternoon.
Dyer was driving a 1994 Ford Mustang when she stopped behind a 1992 Cadillac, driven by Elizabeth LaPlante, 49, of Mapleton, according to police. LaPlante, who was heading south, had stopped at Main and Blake streets while another vehicle in front of her turned left onto Blake Street, police said.
Behind Dyer was a 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by Ronald Bouchard, 54, of Frenchville. Police said Bouchard apparently didn’t see the stopped cars and hit the back of Dyer’s vehicle, which then hit the back of LaPlante’s car.
Neither Bouchard, LaPlante nor Dyer’s passenger, Steven Currier, 17, of Presque Isle, was injured, police said.
Damage to LaPlante’s vehicle was estimated at $2,000, while Dyer’s was estimated at $3,000 to $4,000. Bouchard’s pickup received about $600 in damage, according to police.
All drivers and passengers were wearing seat belts, police said.
Investigating the accident was Presque Isle police Officer Forrest Dudley.
