The impact shatters windows, while a petrified female passenger in Bisson’s pickup asks him to call her mom.
The passengers and driver of a Buick, another vehicle that has been rammed in the incident, weren’t so lucky. Barbara Young, 82, was in the driver seat at the brief moment of impact, and was taken up to hospital. Her passengers, two men aged 61 and 91, were admitted to Maine INFIRMARY also. The victims’ injuries are non-life-threatening, however.
Miraculously, the Chevrolet driver is and survived likely to face multiple charges once he could be released from hospital.
Tucker have been sought by police over “a domestic situation” in Casco, where he threatened drive to a residence in a nearby town to “cause harm.”
A sheriff deputy stopped and spotted Tucker at a busy intersection, ordering him to pull at a parking lot. The driver, however, sped and fled up. Police chased him for approximately half of a mile but were forced to let him go as he was driving extremely recklessly, plus they made a decision to instead deploy a spike trap.
