Two Fatalities in Head-on Collision in Union - July 12, 2017

Just before 5 p.m. on July 12, Deputies from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a two vehicle head-on crash on Rt. 17 in Union, just east of Shepard Hill Rd. 

Sherry Cloutier, 52, of Augusta, operating a 2011 Ford Sedan, was driving west on Rt. 17. For some unknown reason, Cloutier crossed the center line and struck a 2002 Saab sedan operated by Angela Knight-Boege, 49, of Warren, who had been travelling eastbound, head-on. 

Both Cloutier and Knight-Boege were pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other passengers in either vehicle. Rt.17 was shut down to traffic for nearly 3 hours before crews were able to clear the road. 

Assistance was provided by Knox County Regional Communications Center, Union Fire and Ambulance Dept., Northeast Ambulance, and Washington Fire Dept.
