LEBANON, Maine — Four people from New Hampshire escaped injury after a two-vehicle accident on Route 111, according to officials.

The accident occurred shortly after 9:30 a.m. Saturday when an eastbound Dodge Stratus driven by a 61-year-old man from Somersworth, N.H., collided with a GMC pickup operated by a 50-year-old man from Sanbornville, N.H., according to Lebanon Rescue Assistant Chief Jason Cole.

Both drivers and their passengers — a 51-year-old Somersworth woman and 59-year-old Sanbornville woman — were not seriously injured and did not require hospital visits, Cole said. All four occupants were wearing seat belts.

The GMC was hauling a trailer with a recreation vehicle on it, the assistant chief said. The Dodge suffered front-end damage and was towed away, while the trailer suffered heavy damage.

The recreation vehicle had to be moved to another trailer, Cole said. The accident marked the 15th on the Carl Broggi Highway since the beginning of June, he added.
