BANGOR — Bangor police say a security fence outside of Maine horror author Stephen King’s home could have sustained up to $100,000 in damages after a woman accidentally crashed into it.

Police Sgt. Paul Edwards said 25-year-old Renee Harris of Alton told police an oncoming car veered into her lane about 9 a.m. Sunday, causing her to swerve and crash into the custom-made, black iron fence outside of King’s home.

Over the years there have been a number of incidents involving people trying to reach King, but Edwards said there’s nothing to indicate that Sunday’s crash was malicious or intentional.

Nobody was injured, and police did not issue a ticket.

King spokeswoman Marsha DeFilippo said the best-selling author was not at home at the time.
