Man Injured in Another Wrong-Way Crash in Maine

June 16, 2008

State police say a Waterville man was injured after crashing his car on I-95 in the latest wrong-way crash on a Maine interstate.

State Trooper Jeffrey Beach says the driver, 29-year-old Richard Crowley, suffered injuries including head trauma when his car slammed into a guardrail Thursday in Sidney. He was transported via LifeFlight helicopter to Central Maine Medical in Lewiston.

It’s part of a troubling spate of wrong-way incidents that started with a fatal collision on the Maine Turnpike April 28th in Ogunquit.

After that, an elderly man from South Carolina was suspected of driving the wrong-way on I-295 in Greater Portland, but no one was hurt in that incident. Less than two weeks later, a motorist was killed less in a fiery collision on I-95 in Augusta.
