Brothers escape serious injury in Shapleigh crash

FROM STAFF REPORTS

SHAPLEIGH — Two Parsonsfield brothers sustained minor injuries in a crash on icy roadways that put their pickup truck on its side on Route 109 on Wednesday.

Both driver Tyler Bisson, 19, and his passenger, Cody Bisson, were trapped in the vehicle until emergency medical personnel from Shapleigh and Acton fire departments were able to free them, said York County Sheriff Bill King.

The crash took place around 3 p.m. Wednesday  at the intersection of Emery Mills Road (Route 109) and Simon Ricker Road.

When first responders arrived, they discovered the two men were trapped in a 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck that went off the road and turned over.

King said Tyler Bisson was driving south on Emery Mills Road when he lost control due to the icy roadway.

The truck veered into the oncoming lane and Bisson appeared to “overcorrect” the truck, causing the truck to strike a snow bank and overturn, King said.

The two men were taken to the Sanford campus of Southern Maine Health Care for treatment.

King said the roadway was closed for about 20 minutes.
