FAIRFIELD — Four people were injured Sunday morning in a multivehicle crash at the intersection of Norridgewock Road and Wood Street in Fairfield, sending three to the hospital, according to police.

The crash was reported just after 11 a.m., according to a statement released by the Fairfield Police Department.

An investigation showed a 2003 Subaru Forester driven by Jared Peaslee, 36, of Waterville was attempting to turn onto Wood Street when the car was hit from behind by a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Linda Abbott, 74, of Anson, police said.

The crash forced Peaslee’s vehicle into the path of a 2015 Subaru Forester driven by Kristen Simon, 38, of New York, sending Simon into the ditch and landing the vehicle on its side.

“Due to the severity of the crash and the nature of injuries to Peaslee’s passenger, the road was closed while the crash was reconstructed by a Trooper from the Maine State Police Traffic Safety Division,” police wrote in the statement.

All three were taken from the scene to MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Thayer Campus in Waterville.

Police said the passenger in Peaslee’s car, who had not been identified Sunday, was taken by a LifeFlight of Maine helicopter from the Waterville hospital to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, where the person was listed in serious condition.

There are no charges pending, according to police.

Fairfield-Benton Fire & Rescue, Delta Ambulance, the Maine State Police, the Maine Department of Transportation and Winslow and Clinton police also responded to the crash.
