RICHMOND

Three men were ejected as the car they were riding in rolled into a field along Beedle Road Sunday just prior to the Interstate 295 overpass.

All were taken to hospitals, the driver by a LifeFlight helicopter.

Richmond police got a call Sunday at 1:35 p.m. from a Beedle Road resident reporting there had been a car rollover accident, which occurred near 808 Beedle Road.

Richmond Police Chief Scott MacMaster said when the officer arrived, he could see two occupants had been ejected. After further investigation, police said all three men in the car were ejected.

The car was driven by Scott Trask, 26, of Richmond, who was airlifted to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. The two passengers in the car were Cameron Blake, 25, and Dakota Roinestad, 18 — both of Richmond.

MacMaster said the three were not wearing seatbelts. The driver, Trask, sustained internal injuries and was airlifted to the hospital. The front seat passenger, Blake was ejected about 60 feet into a field and was taken to CMMC by North East Mobile Health Services. The rear passenger, Roinestad, was ejected during the crash and the car rolled over him. He was taken to MaineGeneral Medical Center by Topsham Rescue.

Roinestead and Blake were listed in fair condition this morning and Trask was in good condition.

MacMaster said he believes the driver lost control of the car, which slid sideways into a guardrail and went airborne and overturned, possibly several times.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash. MacMaster said it was too premature to know what other factors may have contributed to the accident.

The crash remains under investigation. Det. Andrew Booth from Bath Police Department conducted a crash reconstruction, assisted by Mark McDonald from Topsham Police Department. MacMaster said there are charges pending and will probably more charges upon completion of the investigation.
