Three hurt in two-car crash in Lebanon

LEBANON, Maine — A two-car crash on Center Road left three people with minor injuries Sunday afternoon.

At about 2:05 p.m., the Lebanon Rescue, York County Sheriff’s and the Lebanon Fire departments responded to a motor-vehicle accident involving a Ford Focus and a Ford Escort.

When they arrived, they treated three people at the scene for minor injuries — the two individuals in the Ford Focus, a 20-year-old male driver from Kennebunk and his 17-year-old male passenger from Lebanon, as well as the passenger of the Ford Escort, a 47-year-old woman from Lebanon. The driver of the Ford Escort, a 50-year-old man from Lebanon, was not hurt.

Assistant Rescue Chief Jason Cole released a statement saying officials believe the Ford Escort had reduced its speed to make a left turn off Center Road into a driveway. The Ford Focus, not anticipating the turn, went around the Escort. In this action, the two cars collided and the Ford Focus hit a stone wall nearby as a result, rolling at least once and coming to rest on top of the stone wall.

All four individuals involved in the accident were wearing seat belts. The Ford Focus sustained severe damage and had to be towed from the scene. The Ford Escort sustained damage on its front driver’s side, but was able to be driven from the scene.

The accident remains under investigation, according to Sgt. Kyle Kassa of the York County Sheriff’s Department.
