LIMINGTON – The York County Sheriff’s Office believes that “extreme fog” may have contributed to an accident that sent one motorist to a Portland hospital Sunday morning.

Sheriff William L. King Jr. in a press release said that 69-year-old Albert Werner of Limington had to be transported to Maine Medical Center after his 1994 Geo Prism – a small, compact car – was “broadsided” by a Mack Truck with a empty tanker trailer attached to it. Werner’s injuries were described as non life threatening.

King said the driver of the truck, 33-year-old John Hodges of Standish, was not injured. Neither vehicle was carrying passengers at the time of the crash, which was reported at 7:15 a.m.

The truck is owned by Cebco Trucking Company of Standish. King said “extreme fog” may have been a contributing factor in the crash, which took place at the intersection of Sokokis Trail (Route 11) and Ossipee Trail (Route 25. King said Werner was traveling north and moving through the traffic signal when his car was hit.

King said his department is seeking the driver of a white Toyota pickup truck, who may have witnessed the crash.
