On the afternoon of Thanksgiving, around 3:05 p.m., the Penobscot Regional Communications Center received a call that there was a crash involving a motor vehicle and a horse-drawn carriage on Avenue Road in Exeter, Maine.

The Penobscot County Sheriff's Office, arrived on the scene, where they found a Jeep that was traveling on Avenue Road had rear-ended the horse-drawn carriage. The horse-drawn carriage had two minors inside, and both refused medical treatment. The horse that was pulling the carriage was spooked and had run away, but the sheriff's deputies were able to locate the horse. The Corinna Fire Department and Northern Light Ambulance assisted the sheriff's deputies at the crash scene.

The driver of the Jeep was not injured in the crash and was Shane Milliard, 31, of Thomaston. During the investigation of the crash, the Sheriff's Deputies discovered that Milliard was out on 10 different sets of bail, and his actions during the crash violated the active conditions of his bail. He was arrested and charged with violation of bail conditions, which are Class E, and was taken to Penobscot County Jail, where he remains. The reasons for the crash continue to remain under investigation by the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office.
