ROCHESTER — Police cited a Farmington man in a pair of two-vehicle collisions within a two-hour period Wednesday morning, the first sending a vehicle crashing through a Washington Street home’s porch and the second entrapping another driver in her car on Route 11.
George Ballou, 45, was issued a summons for failure to yield in the Washington Street crash and a yellow line violation in the Route 11 crash, according to Capt. Todd Pinkham. Ballou wasn’t charged or arrested.
Both crashes are still under investigation, Pinkham said. The first crash occurred around 7:30 a.m. and the second around 9 a.m.
Authorities, victims and witnesses say it’s fortunate no one was seriously injured in either crash, though one woman was injured in the second crash.
