A Massachusetts man has been arrested for allegedly driving while drunk following a Monday evening car crash in Wells.

At around 11:46 p.m., a northbound 2013 Toyota Corolla crashed into a northbound 2021 Subaru Forester near mile 18 on I-95, according to Shannon Moss, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The occupants of the Subaru, 64-year-old Carol Funk and 65-year-old Steven Funk of Scarborough, were transported to York Hospital with injuries.
