AUBURN, Maine — Few details were available about a three-vehicle, chain-reaction crash on Route 4 that occurred Monday afternoon.

According to police, a northbound 1997 Toyota driven by Melissa Brown, 20, was stopped on Route 4 waiting to turn left onto Lake Shore Drive. Behind her was a 2002 Scion driven by Amy Liberman, 33. And behind Liberman was a 1995 Ford pickup driven by Chester Merriam, 33, of Sumner.
