WILTON — Newly elected state Sen. Thomas Saviello, 60, and the driver of another vehicle, Adam Sage, 30, of Livermore both escaped an early Tuesday morning crash at the intersection of Route 133 and McCrillis Corner Road with minor injuries.
Both Sage, a reserve police officer with the town of Livermore Falls, and Saviello were treated and released from Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington.
Wilton Police said Sage was traveling East on Route 133 while Saviello, a Republican from Wilton, was crossing the intersection of Route 133 from the McCrillis Corner Road.
The vehicles collided in the intersection. Saveillo's vehicle rolled over and went into a marsh. Sage's vehicle came to rest in the roadway.
Both vehicles received substantial damage in the crash that happened about 6 a.m. and was initially reported as a serious injury accident, though upon arriving they found the drivers had sustained only minor injuries. Speed and alcohol are not factors and both drivers were wearing seatbelts, said Wilton Detective Richard Billian. The Wilton Police are continuing their investigation.
Wilton Fire Department and NorthStar Ambulance assisted at the scene.
