FAIRFIELD, Maine (AP) — A Fairfield police officer who caused an accident in January while making a U-turn in pursuit of a speeding car has been cleared of wrongdoing.
A crash report by Maine State Police showed that Officer William Beaulieu failed to yield the right of way when his cruiser made a U-turn on U.S. Route 201 and was struck by a truck on Jan. 31.
But a deputy attorney general determined that no traffic citation be issued because the turn was legal, did not happen on a curve or the crest of a hill where the oncoming vehicle could not be seen.
Beaulieu was injured and his cruiser was totaled.
The Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/ZOV3wo ) reports that the driver of the car he was pursuing could still be issued a speeding ticket.
