ALFRED — A head-on collision on Route 202 in Alfred sent four people to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries Sunday afternoon.
State Trooper Matthew Williams said witnesses reported that a 2005 Hyundai Elantra sedan operated by Joshua Markham of South Berwick had been weaving across an eastbound lane when his car hit a Subaru Forester that was heading westbound.
Markham and his two passengers, Heather Markham of South Berwick and Elsie Thompson of New Hampshire, were transported to local hospitals as was the driver of the Subaru, 35-year-old Sherree Call of Lebanon.
Trooper Williams said the cause of the crash appears to have been distracted driving but he said the particulars of what led to the crash and whether charges would be filed have not been determined yet.
Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor, Wiliams said.
