Archer was unable to avoid Fuller and the two vehicles struck head on. Both Fuller and Archer sustained minor injuries in the crash. Archer was transported by Patten Ambulance.
Both vehicles sustained significant damage in the crash and were towed from the scene.
Tr. Saucier was assisted at the scene by Deputy Vance Palmer of the Aroostook Sheriff’s Dept. and Patten Ambulance.
