WARREN, Maine — Three people were injured, one critically, after a two-car accident Tuesday, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
At about 4:30 p.m. Howard Taggart, 58, was driving his 2000 Chevy Blazer north on Route 1 in Warren near Loons Cry Campground, when he drifted into oncoming traffic. A black 2000 Mazda MPV operated by Jess Brann, 34, was hit head on. Passengers in the Blazer were sisters Allyson Taggert, 34, and Holly Anderson, 31, according to the Sheriff’s Office. No hometowns were given for any of the victims.
Both drivers had to be cut out of their vehicles. Warren and Waldoboro ambulances responded. Brann, who was taken to Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta, was listed in stable condition on Wednesday. Howard Taggart is at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor and, as of Wednesday morning, was still listed as being in critical condition. Holly Anderson was taken to Penobscot Bay Medical Center in Rockport for a complaint of back pain and was discharged by Wednesday morning.
Based on this report, it is apparent that the passengers in Mr. Taggert’s vehicle, Ms. Taggert and Ms. Anderson, will have claims against Mr. Taggert’s automobile insurance coverage for their injuries. Ms. Brann, the operator of the Mazda, will also have a claim against Mr. Taggert for his negligence.
