HOLLIS — A 25-year-old Limington man died Tuesday night following what public safety officials are describing as a “violent head-on collision” on Cape Road, Route 117.

Jordan Lambert was a passenger in a car that was struck head-on by a second vehicle at about 10:30 p.m.

Maine Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland on Wednesday said the drivers of both cars were being treated at Maine Medical Center in Portland for leg and internal injuries and are expected to survive.

Lambert was rushed to Maine Medical, Center, but died at the hospital, McCausland said. 

Maine State Police Corporal Jessica Shorey said a Hyundai driven by 24-year-old Nicholas Rushforth of Hollis was completely in the opposite lane when his car collided with a Nissan driven by Tiffani Mains, 22, of Buxton. Lambert was a passenger in Mains’ car.

McCausland said state troopers are now attempting to determine why Rushforth was in the wrong lane and which occupants were wearing seatbelts.
