LIMESTONE, Maine — Three people appear to have escaped serious injury in a weather-related head-on crash on West Gate Road on Thursday afternoon.
Police Chief Stacey Mahan said Thursday evening that the collision took place just after 3:15 p.m.
According to the chief, he arrived at the scene to see that one vehicle was in the center of the road and the other had veered into a ditch.
One vehicle was a 1999 Pontiac carrying two occupants. Police did not immediately release their names. The other vehicle was a 2000 Dodge.
One of the occupants of the Pontiac had to be extricated from the vehicle. Both were taken to Cary Medical Center in Caribou with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. No further information about the motorists was available Friday.
The driver and sole occupant of the Dodge did not require medical care.
Both vehicles were a total loss.
Mahan said that the accident appeared to be weather-related because of slush and rain on the road.
Mahan was assisted by Limestone Officers Ron Guillemette and Lucas Hafford, along with the Limestone Fire Department, Caribou Fire and Ambulance and the Caribou Police Department.
Mahan expressed thanks to the numerous motorists who stopped to help before emergency services arrived.
