LISBON — Firefighters freed a man from his mangled car Wednesday night after it collided with a pickup truck on Lisbon Street.

The accident occurred at about 8:30 p.m. a quarter mile into Lisbon from the Lewiston town line. It appeared a four-door Hyundai was T-boned by a Ford pickup truck, briefly trapping the driver inside his car.

Lisbon fire crews extricated the man who was taken to a Lewiston hospital. A witness said the man was conscious and talking when he was pulled from the car.

The driver of the truck was examined by paramedics at the scene.

Lisbon police were investigating the wreck. The names of the drivers were not immediately available.

The cause of the crash remained unclear. The impact ripped a tire from the pickup truck and sent the Hyundai spinning in the street, the driver’s-side door smashed in.

“It was so loud,” said one man who lives in the area, “I thought a transformer had blown.”

The vehicles collided in front of 22 Lisbon St., just up the road from Hairrazors salon.

Police from Lisbon and Lewiston responded, rerouting traffic down Gayton and Moody roads.
