Three people were hospitalized after a head-on crash on Route 302 in Westbrook early Friday evening.

Their injuries were not life-threatening, said Westbrook Police Sgt. Timothy Morrell, who did not release the names of the people in the crash or say what injuries they suffered.

The collision occurred around 6:10 p.m. near 136 Bridgton Road, also called Route 302.

A silver Ford traveling west collided with a blue Subaru traveling east.

A man and woman in the Ford were taken to the hospital after being extricated from the vehicle by Westbrook fire and rescue workers.

The driver of the Suburu was also taken to the hospital.

Police said neither alcohol nor speed appear to be factors in the crash, which is still under investigation.

The road was closed to all traffic after the crash and reopened at 7:40 p.m.
