William King Jr., chief deputy for the York County Sheriff’s Office, said in a news release Monday night that Lisa Desmond, 49, of Kennebunk, drove from the Eagles club parking lot in her 1992 Cadillac Deville into the path of a northbound 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan around 6 p.m.

The Caravan, driven by Jeffrey Nason, 45, of Kennebunk, hit Desmond’s car in the front driver’s side and pushed it into a snowbank on the shoulder of the southbound lane, King said.

Desmond was taken to Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford, as was one of her passengers, Kevin Perkins, 49, of Kennebunk. A second passenger in Desmond’s car, Michael Little, 42, Kennebunk, was taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland. King said all three were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Nason was taken to Southern Maine Medical Center and later transferred to Maine Medical Center, King said. Nason’s 16-year-old son was also injured in the crash and taken to the hospital in Biddeford.

King said Desmond has a court date of March 12.
