Four children safe after collision totals cars
FORT KENT - Police Chief Kenneth Michaud said on Monday morning that four children are uninjured after two cars crashed into each other on Friday morning, June 15, though an ambulance transported one of the women involved in the accident to the Northern Maine Medical Center.
Michaud said that at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Friday, Danielle Banning, 28 of Eagle Lake, was travelling north on Route 11.
Michaud said Banning's young son was in the backseat and was "having a problem." Banning turned around in her seat to attend to her son.
At the same time, Tina Frenette, 27 of Fort Kent, was driving with her two sons, ages six and seven, south on Route 11.
Frenette attempted to make a left turn into a driveway. Banning's 2000 Ford hit Frenette's 2007 Camry in the right rear quarter panel.
Bannings vehicle then shot across the road into a rock embankment.
Both cars were a total loss, said Michaud.
Police responded to the scene and an ambulance transported Banning, who complained of back pain, to the hospital.
