JAY — No one was injured in a three-vehicle collision at Bean’s Corner at the intersection of routes 156 and 133.

Nyesha Cooke, 20, of Bangor stopped at the stop sign on Route 156 but then failed to yield as she drove across Route 133 to another portion of 156 toward Chesterville, Jay police Sgt. Troy Young said.

Douglas Whittemore, 57, of Jay was traveling north on Route 133 heading toward Farmington when his minivan collided with Cooke’s 2002 Ford Focus, that she had just bought, Young said.

Cooke’s car was then pushed into an oil truck driven by Eric Sayer, 27, of Canton, which was stopped at the stop sign on Route 156.

Cooke was given a ticket charging failure to yield at a stop sign, Young said.

He estimated that both Cooke’s car and Whittemore’s 1999 Oldsmobile were totaled and estimated that the oil truck received about $2,500 in damage. The 2006 GMC 7500 truck is owned by Hometown Energy LLC.

Both Cooke and Whittemore were checked out at the scene by NorthStar Emergency Medical Services ambulance staff. Two dogs were also not injured, he said.

Jay firefighters and police Chief Larry White Sr. assisted Young at the scene.

The road was closed briefly to allow the Hilltop Collision Wrecking Service to tow Cooke’s and Whittemore’s vehicles, Young said.

M T Pockets of Dixfield responded to pry the bumper off a front tire on the oil truck to make it drivable, he said.
