 GORHAM - Three people were taken to the hospital with what were described as non-life-threatening injuries following a three-car collision Saturday morning.

Gorham police said the crash occurred shortly after 11 a.m. when Roger Mercaldi, 69, of Georgetown failed to yield to traffic when he tried to turn onto North Street from the Phinney Lumber yard.

According to police, the driver of a second car, Lorrie Mininger, 50, of Gorham, swerved to avoid Mercaldi's car and hit another car, driven by Benjamin Tuttle, 49, of Gorham, who was stopped at a stop sign.

Police said Mininger and one of her passengers, Robert Mininger, 52, were taken to the hospital, along with Tuttle.

Gorham police said the crash remains under investigation.
