TOWNSHIP 22 – A collision between a van and a tractor-trailer on Route 9 sent three people to the hospital Tuesday afternoon.
The crash happened just after 1:30 p.m., according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities say the driver of a Dodge minivan fell asleep at the wheel and crossed the center line, striking the tractor-trailer once before bouncing off and striking the rear tires of the truck.
The van then spun off the road, ending up in a ditch.
The driver and both passengers in the van were transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center for evaluation.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
