05 Aug Breaking News: No Charges So Far
Update from WCME News 9: So far no charges against 16-year-old Isabella Slocum, the driver of a pickup that struck and killed a 75-year-old woman and her dog on Harpswell Island Road near Mountain Road in Harpswell–very close to the woman’s home.
It’s an accident that remains under investigation and police identify the victim as Rita Douglas who was walking the dog. Traffic was backed up for a time near the intersection after emergency crews arrived at the scene.
Rita Douglas was born in Germany and met her husband, Robert Douglas, in her native country while he was in the military. They were planning a celebration of their 49th wedding anniversary this weekend.
