GORHAM — Two people were transported to local hospitals after three vehicles were destroyed in a crash at Main Street and Libby Avenue Sunday afternoon.

Gorham Police Department Sgt. Michael Nault said a 2004 Dodge Durango driven by 42-year-old Ronnie Willey of Gorham failed to yield when it entered the intersection.

A 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by 20-year-old Garrett Beesley of Gorham “broadsided” Willey’s vehicle, causing it to roll over.

Willey’s Dodge Durango kept rolling and landed on the hood of a 2007 Nissan Sentra, driven by Nikki Sproul, 31, of South Portland.

Nault said seat belts and properly installed child safety seats prevented serious injuries. Two people sustained injuries that are not life-threatening.

The accident, which took place 4:41 p.m., remains under investigation.
