LEBANON, Maine — Two people escaped injuries Monday after a rollover in Lebanon, according to emergency rescue officials.

Lebanon Rescue, Maine State Police and the Lebanon Fire Department were sent to Lower Guinea Road around 5 p.m. Monday, according to Lebanon Rescue Assistant Chief Jason Cole.

When crews arrived, they found a 2007 Toyota Tacoma on its roof in the roadway, Cole said. The vehicle was traveling eastbound when it left the road, struck a tree and flipped over, according to Cole.

The 31-year-old driver and his 27-year-old male passenger, whose names Cole did not release, refused medical treatment. The driver was wearing his seatbelt, according to Cole.

Lower Guinea Road was closed to traffic for about an hour while crews cleaned up the accident, according to Cole. The truck was extensively damaged and had to be towed.

State Police are investigating the crash, Cole said.
