BANGOR, Maine — Three people were taken to the hospital late Thursday after a collision at a Bangor intersection, according to police.

Jessica Roy, 18, of Bradley, was traveling along Kenduskeag Avenue shortly after 11 p.m. when she broadsided a van Arthur Lujan, 43, of Lincoln was driving down Griffin Road, Bangor police Sgt. Wade Betters said.

Roy’s vehicle struck Lujan’s after she ran the blinking red light at the intersection of Kenduskeag and Griffin, according to Betters.

Each vehicle had three passengers, but only one of them, Lujan’s 13-year-old son, required a trip to the hospital, the sergeant said.

Both drivers were transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Betters said.

Both vehicles were demolished in the accident, the sergeant said. The crash remains under investigation.
