LEBANON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Eleven people in four cars were involved in a serious car crash in Lebanon Sunday night, and rescue efforts were hampered by someone jamming the emergency radio frequency.
The Lebanon Rescue Department says a Chevy Malibu had stopped on the Carl Broggi Highway around 6:30 PM to turn into Trains Quick Stop; a GMC truck traveling behind the Malibu was unable to stop and slammed into the Malibu and then crossed into oncoming traffic.
There it collided head on with a Buick, and the car behind the Buick, a Ford Explorer, was also unable to stop and slammed into the GMC.
A male and female in the GMC were taken to the hospital, the female driver of the Malibu was also taken. An 8 year old in the car was evaluated at the scene for his injuries.
The driver of the Buick, a 102 year old man, from Lebanon was taken to the hospital.
Everyone in the Explorer refused to be taken, although they did suffer some injuries.
Lebanon Rescue says none of the injuries of those taken to the hospital appear to be life threatening.
Lebanon's assistant chief, Jason Cole, says that the person jamming the emergency frequency caused a delay of several minutes in getting ambulances to the scene.
He says the FCC will be helping identify the source of the jamming Monday.
