According to police, a Massachusetts driver on Route 302 in Maine hit the guardrail on the left side of the road and came to a stop after colliding with the chain-link fence of the nearby Blake Equipment Company.
Paul Townsend was driving a gold 2006 Hyundai Elantra. The car was totaled after the accident, and all of the car’s air bags deployed upon impact. The car’s passenger, George Townsend, had to be removed from the car, because the fence prevented him from opening the car door himself. The seventy-six year old was taken to the hospital to be examined and for damage to his hand. Paul Townsend sustained minor injuries and was transported to Maine Medical Center for evaluation.
Windham Police Officer Ray Williams said the car accident was related to a medical problem and was not caused by traffic or high speeds.
