Four people were taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon after a three-vehicle crash on Route 202 in Lebanon, Maine State Police said.

Kevin Warden, 48, of Lebanon, at the wheel of a GMC sport utility vehicle in the eastbound lane of Route 202, was waiting to turn left into a store parking lot when he was rear-ended by a pickup driven by Michael Letourneau, 58, of Sanford, state police Trooper Robert Cejka said. Letourneau told police he was distracted by an item falling out of a bag in the truck.

The impact of the collision pushed Warden’s vehicle into oncoming traffic, where it was hit by an SUV driven by Roderick Pero, 68, of New Durham, New Hampshire.

Cejka said Warden was trapped in his vehicle and had to be cut out by rescue crews. All three drivers were injured, along with Paula Pero, 65, Roderick Pero’s wife, in the SUV.

Cejka said all of the injured were in stable condition Saturday night at local hospitals.

No charges were filed, he said.
