LEBANON, Maine — Six people escaped serious injury Monday evening after a two-vehicle collision in York County, according to officials.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Center and Lower Cross roads shortly before 7:30 p.m., Lebanon Rescue Assistant Chief Jason Cole said.
A 2000 Dodge Caravan operated by a 39-year old Lebanon man was heading north on Center Road when a 2003 Dodge Caravan driven by a teenage girl from Lebanon attempted to make a turn off Lower Cross Road and collided with the older minivan, according to Cole.
The impact sent the 2000 Dodge skidding into the George Stuart Baseball Field parking area while the newer van came to a rest in the southbound lane of Center Road.
Cole noted that given the damage – both vehicles were totaled – that the drivers were lucky to walk away with minor injuries.
The driver of the older van and his three passengers, children ranging from ages 6 to 11, were all wearing their seat belts and treated at the scene.
The girl, whose age was not released, was shaken up while her 43-year old male passenger was treated at the scene.
State Police is investigating the crash further, and the scene was cleared around 8:30 p.m.
