ELLSWORTH — A crash in Ellsworth sent three people to the hospital Monday morning.
The Ellsworth Police Department responded to the three-vehicle crash on Bangor Road, between North Street and Christian Ridge Road, just after 7 a.m.
According to Ellsworth Police Chief Glenn Moshier, a car traveling south crossed over and struck another vehicle, which rolled over into a ditch off the northbound lane.
Moshier said the first vehicle spun into the roadway striking a third car.
Two people were taken to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor with serious injuries and another was taken to Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital in Ellsworth with non-life-threatening injuries.
The road was closed for nearly two hours while police reconstructed the crash. The cause is still under investigation.
