PORTLAND — A section of Congress Street, near Brooklawn Cemetery, had to be closed for two hours Thursday morning after two vehicles collided head-on.

Sgt. Troy Bowden said a 1996 Ford Ranger operated by Robert Biltcliffe of Saco “drifted into the oncoming lane” while traveling outbound on Congress Street.

Biltcliffe’s pickup truck hit a 2007 Honda minivan driven by Brenda Grindle of Portland.

Biltcliffe, a passenger whose name was not available, and Grindle had to be transported by ambulance to Maine Medical Center. Bowden said Biltcliffe suffered a serious injury but he was listed in fair condition by a hospital spokesperson Thursday night.

The cause of the crash, which took place at 11:35 a.m., remains under investigation.
