BRUNSWICK

Brunswick police say a car and a dump truck collided head-on Thursday afternoon on Old Portland Road in Brunswick.

The crash was reported just before 4 p.m. in the area of the Fairfield Inn. The section of Old Portland Road was closed between Pleasant Street and Greenwood Road while police investigated.

According to Brunswick Police Cmdr. Tom Garrepy, 58-year-old Michael Labbe of Brunswick was driving a 2001 Kenworth dump truck south on Old Portland Road. A sliver 2004 Nissan Sentra was traveling north when it drifted into the oncoming lane and collided with the dump truck. The male driver of the car has not been positively identified.

Brunswick Rescue took the driver of the Nissan to Maine Medical Center with what Garrepy characterized as “multi-systems trauma.” His condition was unknown Thursday night.

Labbe, the driver of the dump truck, was not injured. The truck belongs to Ray Labbe & Sons of Brunswick.

The collision is under investigation by the Brunswick Police Department and the Maine State Police Commercial Motor Vehicle Division.
