Three people were taken to the hospital after an accident in Holden Friday morning.

Police tell us a pick-up truck crossed the center line on Route 1A near the town office, striking a station wagon.

Both drivers were taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

They say the woman driving the wagon is in stable condition and man driving the pick-up suffered facial trauma.

Police say a female passenger in the truck had to removed with the Jaws of Life. She was also taken to the hospital with chest and facial injuries.

State Police are reconstructing the scene.

“It’s a very heavily traveled road today. It is bumper to bumper traffic, so I don’t think speed necessarily was a factor at this particular time, but trying to figure out why the pickup truck was on the wrong side of the road. It is a no passing zone. It’s on the top of the hill and a a curve, so that becomes a question we’ll need to answer,” said Sgt. Eugene Fizell.

The road will be closed for some time.
