ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a burglary at a Brooksville cottage that a caretaker reported Sunday.


Two vehicles collided at the intersection of Great Pond Road and Route 182 Monday after a motorist’s vision was obscured by brush and he was unable to see an oncoming car, police said.

Once the operator pulled out and saw the oncoming car, he quickly put the vehicle in reverse to back up and avoid a collision but wasn’t quick enough and collided with the car, police said.

Susan Nickerson, 44, of Ellsworth was driving south on Route 182 in a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am, which collided with a 2000 Chevrolet operated by Denton Johnson, 20, of Gouldsboro, police said.

The Pontiac was a total loss and the Chevrolet sustained damage to its driver’s side, police said.

The driver of a sport utility vehicle rear-ended a car after he was distracted and looked down at his ringing cell phone on Route 1 in Hancock March 3, police said.

Christopher Morse, 20, of Mariaville was driving west in a 1997 Jeep, which struck a 1997 Subaru operated by James Piper, 40, of Franklin, police said.

The Subaru had been stopped on Route 1 waiting to turn left with its signal on, police said.

Police estimated $2,000 in damage to each vehicle.

Piper was taken to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.
