Lisa Sullivan, 39, of New Gloucester watches as Auburn firefighters look over the van she was driving Saturday afternoon when she pulled out of the Irving gas station on Washington Street in Auburn and collided with a pickup, background.  “I was pulling out of the gas station and there was a van pulling in, and I didn’t see him (pickup) coming,” Sullivan said as she waited for a tow truck to arrive.

The driver of the truck, James Macnaught, 38, swerved to avoid Sullivan, collided with the front of her van and rolled over, said Auburn Police Lt. Tim Cougle. Macnaught was not injured, but his wife, Aloyoisa, and two children in the truck, were transported to Central Maine Medical Center and released, police said. All were wearing seatbelts, Cougle said.

Police estimated damage to Sullivan’s van at $5,000, and said the 2002 pickup is totaled. The crash is under investigation.
