AUBURN — Police on Saturday night were investigating a two-vehicle crash that sent two people to a local hospital.

Brenden Giambra of Lewiston and Teresa Bennett of Harrison were taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston following the 5:31 p.m. crash at the intersection of Hotel and Stevens Mill roads. Giambra was not listed as a patient at the hospital Saturday night, according to a nursing supervisor.

Little information was available about the crash Saturday night, in which a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by Giambra collided with a 2001 Dodge Intrepid driven by Bennett.

“I’m literally so lucky,” said Stefan Vallee, 18, of Lewiston. “I wasn’t even looking up when it happened.”

Vallee was a passenger in Giambra’s car, which ended up in the woods following the crash. He said the two were heading to a friend’s house when the crash occurred and that they were traveling on Stevens Mill Road. There is a stop sign on Stevens Mill Road, while Hotel Road has a flashing yellow light.

Vallee, who looked disheveled following the crash, said he made sure his friend was OK before rescue crews arrived.

“I said to him, ‘Are you OK?’ I made him say yes and give me the thumbs up,” Vallee said.
