Deputies for the York County Sheriff’s Office were so busy Sunday and Monday responding to stranded motorists and vehicle crashes caused by icy roads that the department issued a news release to let the public know that officers had been working out straight.

Sheriff William L. King Jr. said records showed that deputies responded to 19 motor vehicle crashes, some with injuries, during that period.

Though the majority of car accidents were Sunday, King said deputies also responded to three crashes caused by icy roads Monday morning.

At 5:40 a.m., Michael J. Linteau, 27, of Waterboro lost control of his 2004 Dodge pickup truck on Route 25 in Limington. King said the truck started to fishtail and slid across an oncoming lane of traffic, hit the shoulder and rolled over. Linteau was not seriously injured, but police had to shut down Route 25 for an hour.

At 7 a.m., 36-year-old Cristen Carpentier of Shapleigh lost control of her 2007 Subaru Impreza on Back Road in Acton. Carpentier’s car left the road, struck a mailbox in front of 922 Back Road, and rolled over. Carpentier was not injured, but her car was destroyed.

At 10:30 a.m., Lydia Hubbard, 18, of Parsonsfield lost control of her 1997 Ford Ranger pickup truck on Bridge Street in Newfield, crossed the centerline and hit a guardrail. The impact caused her pickup truck to roll over before coming to rest on a large tree. Hubbard was not injured. Her vehicle was destroyed.
