SABATTUS — Two drivers were seriously injured in a head-on crash shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday on Route 126 near the intersection of Route 9, according to police.

At least one person had to be freed by local firefighters, Lt. Daniel Davies wrote in a statement dispatched to media.

Both drivers were taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston for evaluation and treatment.

The crash was reconstructed by a member of the Lewiston Police Department due to the severity of the injuries, Davies wrote.

Preliminary investigation shows the operator of a 2013 Subaru Outback was headed east and crossed the centerline of the highway, also known as Sabattus Road, and struck a 2008 Volvo sedan, which was westbound, Davies wrote.

The Subaru driver was trapped in the car.

Police haven’t determined the exact speed of the vehicles; the area is posted at 45 mph.

Police did not immediately release the names of the drivers involved in the crash, which remains under investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the crash who has not yet come forward is urged to call Sabattus Police Department at 207-375-6952.

Also Tuesday afternoon, a car and dump truck collided on Sabattus Street in what Davies said was a minor crash.
