FARMINGTON — A New Sharon woman was charged Wednesday with furnishing alcohol to two teenagers who were later injured in an accident on Weeks Mills Road in New Sharon, Franklin County Lt. David St. Laurent said.

A 15-year-old New Sharon boy received a head injury in the single-car accident early Monday.

Detectives charged Caryn Savage, 27, via summons, with felony furnishing a place to consume alcohol that resulted in injury, and two misdemeanor charges of furnishing liquor to a minor.

The driver, Adam King, 19, has been charged with felony aggravated operating under the influence and misdemeanor charges of operating beyond conditions or restrictions of license.

King is not a U.S. citizen and is from Newfoundland, Canada. He is in the U.S. on a 10-year visa, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Robbins told a Franklin County Superior Court justice on Monday during King’s initial appearance.

According to Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr., the pickup truck that King was driving went off the road and into a ditch about 12:30 a.m. Monday. That truck was later reported stolen.

Both King and a 15-year-old male passenger were intoxicated, Nichols said. The boy was expected to be released from a Portland hospital on Wednesday, he said.

King received minor injuries but declined to be taken by ambulance to a Farmington hospital.

Franklin County detectives investigated where the teens had consumed the alcoholic beverages, he said. The information led investigators to a home on Weeks Mills Road, which was occupied by Savage.

The investigation revealed she had purchased the alcoholic beverages for King and the juvenile, as well as multiple other juveniles from the New Sharon area for a party that occurred at her home, Nichols said.

The investigation is ongoing.

The Sheriff’s Department asks anyone with additional information regarding this case to contact St. Laurent at 778-2680.
