PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A three car crash on I-295 in Portland late this afternoon tied up traffic for about three-hours, and sent one person to the hospital with serious injuries.
It happened shortly after 4pm in the southbound lane between the Forest Avenue and Franklin Street exits of 295.
Authorities say a Chevy Cruze --driven by a woman from Pennsylvania, was in the right lane when it was hit by a pick up truck. The Cruze was then struck by a third vehicle, a Chevy Equiniox driven by Dennis Carson of Portland. Carson's vehicle rolled over coming to rest on its side. A passenger riding with Carson was taken to the hospital and is listed in critical condition tonight.
