Cruiser crushed

1/20 at 7:38 a.m. Officer Troy Garrison was in his parked cruiser at the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Lewiston Road, when a Toyota driven by a 17-year-old male of Topsham crashed into the back of his car. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage, and Garrison was treated for a head injury at Midcoast Hospital in Brunswick and released. No charges are planned against the youth, who sustained no injuries but was driving too fast for conditions, with sun glare preventing him from seeing Garrison’s cruiser, according to police.
