The teen, who was not identified, suffered chest and head injuries and was transported from Goodall Hospital in Sanford, before being transferred to Maine Medical Center in Portland.
The one-car crash occurred on Route 11 at about 2 p.m. Monday. The road was wet, and according to witnesses, the vehicle spun out and struck a utility pole. Both occupants had to be extricated from the vehicle.
The driver -- also a teenager, and related to the seriously injured passenger -- was treated and released.
The crash remains under investigation but no charges are anticipated.
