Newfield, ME — According to reports coming out of Maine, a woman was injured in an accident with a pickup truck on Tuesday. The accident took place on Water Street in Newfield, around four in the afternoon.
Emily Mee was driving down the street when she was hit by a Ford F250 being driven by Steven Boivin. Mee had to be extricated from her vehicle by emergency workers arriving on the scene. She was then taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland by helicopter.
Boivin said that before the crash, he had leaned over to pick up his cell phone, which had fallen to the floor.
At last report, Mee was listed in satisfactory condition.
Charges are expected to be filed against Boivin.
Scene of the Accident
Anything is possible, but it seems like we have a pretty good idea of what happened here. The driver of the truck dropped his phone, he bent to pick it up, and crashed into the victim’s car. Thankfully, she’s alright and getting the proper medical attention. With the driver of the truck pretty much admitting to being at fault for the accident, there hopefully won’t be a lot of back and forth in the aftermath. Hopefully, he’ll do his part to make this right.
However, there are several things that can hold up what might be considered a “speedy” claim. And of course, what might seem cut and dry to a victim will be anything but to an insurance company. So if there’s every anything that doesn’t seem as clear as it should to someone involved in an accident like this, it’s never a bad idea to have someone looking after your interests.
