DURHAM


Maine State Police continue to investigate the Thursday three-car crash that sent three people to the hospital, including a Norway man who was ejected from his vehicle.


The crash was reported at 4:45 p.m. at the intersection of Route 125 and Quaker Meeting House Road.


Ejected from the GMC pickup truck he was driving was Paul Black, 44, of Norway, who was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston where he is in serious condition, said Trooper Steven Black tonight. At this point in the investigation, Green said police believe Black was not wearing a seat belt.


Chungho Cheng, 40, of Lewiston, was driving a Toyota sports utility vehicle and was transported following the crash for a complaint of pain to his torso.


The driver of the third vehicle involved, a Dodge Neon, was Amy-Lynn Law, 19, of Lisbon, who was transported to CMMC with a minor foot injury.


Freeport and Durham fire and rescue crews responded as well as a Lisbon police officer and the road was closed down for a period Thursday night.


Witness statements and the story told by the damage to the vehicles, all totaled, are conflicting, Green said, noting it appears one of the three vehicles  was traveling west on Quaker Meeting House Road and ran the stop sign and red blinking light. State police, with the help of Lewiston Police Officer Jeremy Somma who mapped the scene with Green today, are conducting a crash reconstruction and working to determine which vehicle ran the stop sign.


Currently, charges are not pending but police will act accordingly following the conclusion of the investigation, Green said.
