LEWISTON — A head-on crash at Sabattus and Russell streets Monday sent an unlicensed driver to the hospital, police said.

A 1998 Chrysler operated by Briana Reny, 21, of Lewiston and a 2014 Jeep driven by Martin Conley, 43, of Lewiston collided about 5:44 p.m., according to Lt.

Both drivers complained of pain after the crash, police said.

Reny was taken to a nearby hospital. She was charged with operating a motor vehicle without a driver’s license.
