A New Hampshire man had to be life-flighted to Eastern Maine Medical Center following a late morning, two-vehicle crash in Plymouth that injured a second driver as well.
Rescue crews had to use the jaws-of-life to free 26-year-old Jayson Whitehouse, of Alton, New Hampshire, from his Honda Civic, before evacuating him by helicopter. Whitehouse was driving toward Newport on Rt. 7 in Plymouth when his sedan crossed the center line and struck an WUV, driven by 38-year-old Courtney Lacadie.
Paramedics also took Lacadie to EMMC with undisclosed injuries. Whitehouse's condition still unknown, as investigators work to figure out exactly what happened.
Fire crews from multiple towns responded to the accident scene. Route 7 was closed off, in both directions, for more than 2 hours.
