Police say a teenager involved in a head-on collision in Corinth last week was distracted by an I-pod before the crash. An accident report by the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department says Central High Senior Max McHugh was driving on the White School House Road last Thursday. Her car crossed the center line and slammed into another vehicle driven by 28-year-old Tanya Clement of Corinth. Her 6-year-old daughter was seriously injured. McHugh, a standout basketball player and soccer player, broke her right leg. The police report says McHugh admitted she was changing a song on her I-pod and not paying attention. No charges have been filed in the case yet. We’re told McHugh most likely faces a civil violation, which would be punishable by a ticket and a fine.
