LEBANON, Maine — Authorities say a truck has smashed into a stone wall in southern Maine, killing two men who became trapped in the vehicle.

Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Jason Cole told WMTW-TV that the crash happened after midnight Sunday in Lebanon, a small town less than 10 miles northeast of Rochester, N.H.

Emergency responders had to pry open the vehicle to free the two men.

One man died at the scene. The other was flown to Maine Medical Center, where he died.

Authorities aren’t releasing the victims’ names until their families can be notified.

The crash is under investigation.

The station reports that the crash shut down nearby roads for five hours, but all have since reopened.
