One driver, two accidents

FRANKLIN – A Stonington man is in the hospital after a pair of accidents over the weekend.

At just after 7 p.m. on Aug. 17, 18-year-old Jared Murphy of Stonington was traveling east on Rt. 182 in Hancock in a white 2000 Dodge Dakota when he attempted to pass. The other driver was 52-year-old Julie Schaul of Chicago, Illinois who was operating a 2007 Subaru Forrester.

As Murphy started to pass, he pulled back abruptly to avoid a vehicle traveling westbound and struck Schaul’s vehicle; the impact sent Schaul’s vehicle off the road down a driveway into a parked vehicle.

Murphy failed to stop at the scene and continued on into Franklin. Approximately five miles away from the scene of the first incident, Murphy lost control of his vehicle and left the roadway. The truck wound up going into a field and rolling over several times; Murphy was ejected from the vehicle.

Murphy was transported by Capital Ambulance to Northern Lights Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for potentially life-threatening injuries.

Schaul and her juvenile daughter were treated at the scene and released.

The Hancock County Sheriff's Department was assisted at the two scenes by the Franklin Fire Department, Hancock Fire Department, Sullivan Fire Department and Capital Ambulance.

Reconstruction of the accident was handled by Deputy Jeff McFarland; Deputy Dakota Dupuis, Deputy Dan Harlan and Lt. Corey Bagley are involved in the investigation
