HEBRON — A three-car accident shut down Route 119 for approximately an hour Monday morning.

No one was injured in the collision on the icy and wet road about a mile east of Hebron center, Deputy Josh Wyman of the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office said.

According to Wyman, a Ford Explorer driven by Jeremy Thompson, 40, of Paris, was heading east from Paris toward Hebron at about 8:35 a.m. when the driver lost control.

The Explorer sideswiped a Dodge minivan driven by Kevin Hewitt, 49, of Turner, who was driving westbound, and drove head-on into a Mercury Mountaineer driven by Katie Dyer, 20, of Hebron. Dyer was driving behind Hewitt.

The Dyer and Hewitt vehicles ended up in snowbanks, while Thompson’s SUV stopped in the center of the road.

All three vehicles were heavily damaged and were towed from the scene, Wyman said.

Route 119 was reopened to traffic at approximately 10 a.m.
