ARUNDEL - Alcohol is being blamed on a crash that sent five people to the hospital with critical injuries.
It happened Monday night outside the Eagle's Club on Route 1 in Arundel. 49 year-old Lisa Desmond of Kennebunk was behind the wheel of one of the two vehicles involved, and has been charged with operating under the influence.
Sheriff's deputies say Desmond was driving out of the club's parking lot when she drove into the path of an on-coming mini van.
45 year-old Jeffrey Nason was driver of that mini van. He and his 16 year-old son are among those who had to be transported to area hospitals.
Desmond is due in court in March.
