CARIBOU, Maine — Local police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that sent multiple people to the hospital Monday night.

Joseph Poisson, 30, of Limestone was heading east on Route 89 shortly after 7:30 p.m. when he lost control of his Buick, according to Caribou Police Chief Michael Gahagan.

Gahagan said the vehicle appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed near the Grimes Road intersection when it left the road and went into a ditch.

The chief added the vehicle went airborne at several locations before coming to rest in a wooded area.

Five other individuals, including three children, were in the vehicle with Poisson, Gahagan said. Their names were not disclosed.

Poisson and the other two adults were taken to Cary Medical Center by ambulance with multiple injuries. Gahagan said none of them were wearing seat belts and one child suffered minor injuries. The extent of the injuries was not available Tuesday.

The accident remains under investigation.
