YORK, Maine — A Wells woman faces a drunken driving charge following a three-car, chain-reaction accident on Route 1 just north of Old Post Road at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Sarah Reeck, 38, was arrested on a charges alleging operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving to endanger, following too close and failure to maintain control of a motor vehicle.

According to police, a 2015 green Subaru driven by Ethan Bald, 18, of Exeter, New Hampshire, was stopped in the left northbound lane to turn left onto Squire Lane. A 2008 green Toyota had stopped behind Bald’s car. Driver Michelle Butler, 53, of York was waiting for Bald to turn left before proceeding.

According to York police, Butler’s car was struck from behind by Reeck’s 2012 black Toyota pickup truck, which pushed the car into Bald’s vehicle.

Reeck’s vehicle struck Butler’s car at a high speed, “with no evidence that she attempted to stop or avoid the crash,” said Sgt. Brian Curtin. “The force of the crash entangled all three vehicles,” he added, causing all three to slide north to a final resting location near the intersection with Mill Ridge Lane.

Bald was uninjured and Butler was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Police said all of the vehicles sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene. York Ambulance and York Village Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Reeck was transported to the York police station and ultimately to the York County Jail after she failed to post bail of $160.

The crash is being reconstructed by the York Police Reconstruction Team. Curtin said reconstruction is routine in any serious crash, but especially critical when someone involved in the accident is facing prosecution.
