Maine Man Arrested After Crash Pins Woman to Hotel Building
A Waldoboro, Maine man is facing some serious charges after a late October crash pinned a woman between a vehicle and the wall of a Belfast Motel.
According to an article on the WCSH 6 website, at around 11 PM on Monday, October 30th, police were called to the Admiral's Ocean Inn for a hit-and-run. At the time, they had been in the process of investigating an alleged domestic incident at the Gull Motel.
Once on the scene, police found a woman who had been struck by a gray Jeep and pinned to the wall of the hotel. Not surprisingly, the woman required immediate care. She was taken to Waldo County Hospital.
Police found that the driver had fled the scene of the crash, but they were able to identify the alleged driver of the Jeep as 56 year old Ronald Grover, of Waldoboro.
On Monday afternoon, police were able to apprehend Grover in the Maine town of Stockton Springs.
Grover has been charged with aggravated assault with a vehicle. He is expected to be arraigned on December 29th.
Police are saying that the incident at the Admiral's Ocean Inn appears to be connected to an alleged domestic incident at the nearby Gull Motel. However, police say the motive is unclear and police are not saying what the relationship between Grover and the victim is.
