Police have determined who was driving the vehicle that was involved in a fatal accident in Enfield last week. The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department says a car driven by 38-year old Leanna Lancaster went off Route 2 last Tuesday night. Lancaster’s passengers, 24-year old Kourtney Grindle Murray and 18-year old Christina Pegg, both of Greenbush, were pronounced dead at the scene. A police officer driving by discovered the crash just before 9:30. Sgt. Scott Young says it appears the car was heading south when it strayed into the northbound lane and crashed into a tree. Lancaster, also of Greenbush, was airlifted to Eastern Maine Medical Center. Police are still investigatiing the cause of the accident.
Based on this report, it is apparent that the estates of Ms. Grindle Murray and Ms. Peggswill have claims against Ms. Lancaster’s automobile insurance coverage for their injuries. It is possible that underinsured motorist coverage insurance may be available to provide additional compensation to the extent that Ms. Lancaster’s coverage for this accident is inadequate.
