Buxton man injured, arrested after Saco crash

SACO — A Buxton man suffered injuries and was detained on four outstanding arrest warrants after a crash on Mast Hill Road late Wednesday.

Saco police said the crash was reported shortly after 11 p.m. and when officers responded, they found two cars damaged – including one that was on fire – wires in the road and a telephone pole damaged.

Saco police said the circumstances of the incident are still under investigation, but one of the drivers involved was Lincoln T. Kimball, 23, of Buxton. They said the second car involved is registered to Matthew Pelletier, 25, of Saco, but they are still investigating who was driving that car.

Police said Kimball's black 2006 Mercedes was heavily damaged and on fire and Pelletier's 2002 Lincoln was also damaged.

Kimball was taken to Southern Maine Medical Center for injuries to his face, most likely from the air bag deploying, police said. He was also arrested on active warrants issued by the York County Sheriff's Office in late July for unauthorized use of property, criminal speeding (30 mph or more over the limit), operating after suspension and failing to report an accident.

Police said Kimball made bail on those charges and was also summonsed for operating under the influence, operating after suspension and refusing to sign a criminal summons. Those three charges were the result of Wednesday's crash, police said.

Kimball is due to appear in Biddeford District Court on Jan. 30 on those charges.

Pelletier was not injured, police said.

An investigation of the crash is continuing, police said Thursday.
