LEBANON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Four people were injured in a serious two-car accident in Lebanon Sunday morning.
In a news release from the Lebanon Rescue Department, Assistant Chief Jason Cole said emergency crews responded to the accident around 10:45 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Carl Broggi Highway and Depot Road in East Lebanon. When crews arrived on scene, they found two cars with extensive damage.
Cole said a 2013 Kia Sedan was traveling off of Little River Road and heading straight onto Depot Road when it didn't stop for a red light. A Chrysler Sebring was traveling on Carl Broggi Highway with a green light and was struck by the Kia.
Rescue officials said a total of four patients were evaluated at the scene. A female passenger in the Kia was taken to Goodall Hospital in Sanford with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The remaining three people with injuries did not require transportation to the hospital after being evaluated on scene.
Traffic was detoured around the scene for nearly an hour as the accident investigation continued. The road was reopened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.
