GEORGETOWN — Icy road conditions the last three days triggered minor crashes in which vehicles careened into rocks or trees, but no drivers were injured, according to Sagadahoc County Sheriff ’s Department.

The latest was a crash in Georgetown reported at 10:15 p.m. Wednesday. Lt. Calvin Temple said Katie Rouillard, 24, of 315 Old Brunswick Road, Bath, was driving a 2002 Ford Escape south on Five Islands Road. She reportedly lost control on the icy roadway, left the road, struck several large rocks head-on which flipped the car onto its roof.

Temple said Rouillard was able to exit the vehicle and get help from a nearby home. She was not injured and was checked out and cleared by Georgetown EMS at the scene.

At 4:14 p.m. Wednesday, deputies were called to a crash involving a plow truck on West Road in Bowdoin. Temple said the driver of a 2004 Honda CR-V, Katherine Lerette, 27, of 76 Summer St., Lisbon Falls, said she was driving north on West Road when she encountered a snow plow approaching from the opposite direction.

Lerette told deputies that the snow plow was in the middle of the road. As it approached, she tried to move closer to the ditch but was unable to avoid being struck by the plow blade.

The blade broke the rearview mirror and gouged a hole in the left rear quarter panel of her vehicle. The plow truck continued on, and Temple noted it is possible the truck driver didn’t realize what had happened.

Temple said Thursday morning that the sheriff ’s department had yet to identify the plow truck driver. Lerette was not injured.

Shortly after noon Wednesday, icy roads sent a Bowdoin man’s vehicle into some trees. Temple said Brian Schlick, 22, of 634 Litchfield Road, Bowdoin, was driving a black 2003 GTI Volkswagen north on Litchfield Road. He lost control on the roadway, which was slick from freezing rain, and skidded off the road, striking some trees. Temple said Schlick did not suffer any injuries.

Icy roads Monday morning contributed to a crash in Arrowsic, said Temple, who responded to a crash on Arrowsic Road in Arrowsic at 9:04 a.m. Monday.

Troy Mains, 34, of 249 Arrowsic Road, Bath, was driving a 2004 Dodge Durango south on Arrowsic Road. Temple said Mains was going up a grade in the road and spun out, driving his vehicle into some ledges. He wasn’t injured and was the sole occupant.

Temple estimated the Durango sustained around $5,000 in damage. The road was very slippery, Temple said, and he called for sand.

Mains reportedly stopped to check on a motorists who had slid off the road about 100 feet down the road from where he hit the ledge.

No charges have been filed in any of these cases.
