SCARBOROUGH — A teenager who was involved in a fatal accident on May 8 was injured in an accident at 8:55 a.m. Monday, June 7, on Route 1 in Scarborough.
Police said Kevin Grondin, 19, of Scarborough, was driving a red Chevrolet pick-up truck when witnesses reported that he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a tractor-trailer truck driven by Ryan Dube, 20, of Sidney.
Grondin was transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland and treated for non-life threatening injuries. He was released later that afternoon. Dube was not injured in the accident.
“(Grondin) was wearing his seatbelt in this accident,” said Officer Andrew Flynn of the Scarborough Police Department. “That really helped.”
Flynn said Grondin seemed dazed and confused at the scene before he was transported to the hospital, but that he did not believe medications prescribed to Grondin after the May 8 accident contributed to crash.
The section of Route 1 between Haigis Parkway and the Dunstan intersection was closed while police responded to and reconstructed the accident.
On May 8 Grondin was one of three teenage passengers in the car driven by Scarborough High School senior Steven Delano when their vehicle collided with a truck at Holmes Road and Payne Road. Delano was killed in the crash, which happened while the four teens were on their way to the Gorham High School senior prom.
