FALMOUTH — Falmouth police are investigating the cause of a crash that forced them to close Blackstrap Road for 45 minutes Wednesday night.
Sgt. Frank Soule said a minivan carrying three people swerved to avoid hitting an animal in the roadway – Soule was not sure what type of animal – and went off the road.
The minivan hit a tree. Two people had to be transported by ambulance to Maine Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, Soule said.
Drugs and alcohol are not believed to have contributed to the crash but Soule said the incident, which took place around 8:45 p.m., remains under investigation.
