ORIENT, Maine — Several people were injured Saturday afternoon after the car they were traveling in crashed into a tree after the driver reportedly leaned over to get in frame for a selfie, according to state police.
Jordan Toner, 29, of Hampden and seven friends were traveling on Deering Lake Road in Orient around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, state police said.

Multiple passengers suffered injuries that included broken bones.
Toner has been charged for failing to maintain control of the car while being distracted.
