BRUNSWICK — A Sabattus man accused in a head-on crash Wednesday night was taken into custody after being followed on foot by a driver into West Bath, police said.

Jason Curran, 37, was driving a 2020 Jeep on Bath Road in Brunswick about 9 p.m. when he veered into the opposite lane, police said.

Nathan Fowler, 44, of West Bath, was driving a 2021 Dodge pickup in the opposite lane and swerved to avoid the Jeep, but was unable to avoid the crash. His Dodge hit a utility pole that cracked in half but remained upright, police said.

Curran was followed on foot by Fowler, according to police, who said they found the two just over the town line in West Bath.

Fowler and his wife, Heidi, were taken to Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Curran, who was alone in the Jeep, was also taken to Mid Coast Hospital for treatment of injuries and released, Police Chief Scott Stewart said.


Curran was arrested and taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland with no bail allowed, Stewart said.

Police said Curran is charged with operating under the influence, leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, operating after revocation, violating conditions of release and aggravated criminal mischief.

The latter is a felony due to the cost of the damaged utility pole, Stewart said. Aggravated criminal mischief is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Police and firefighters shut down one lane of Bath Road for about 45 minutes.
