Three Car Accident In Palmyra 

A three car accident in Palmyra sent two men to the hospital earlier today. According to state police 66-year-old Gary Bartlett was trying to make a left turn off of Route 11 in Palmyra when he was rear ended by 51-year-old Michael Archambault of Troy.That collision caused Bartlett’s red Ford pick-up truck to side-swipe a station wagon driven by 63-year-old Thomas Roberts of Pittsfield. None of the men were seriously injured. Bartlett and Archambault were transported to Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield. Police on the scene say alcohol may have been a factor. “That’s still under investigation now,” says Maine State Trooper Scott Dalton, “alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. There is alcohol on scene but we don’t know as of yet as to who was driving and drinking or what have you but there is another trooper at the hospital now doing that part of the investigation.”
