    Police say three people were seriously injured following a head-on crash between two pickup trucks along state Route 9 in Kennebec County in Maine.

    The Kennebec Journal reports the trucks collided in Chelsea around 6 p.m. Monday close to the Randolph town line.

    Sheriff Ryan Reardon says both vehicles, a 1986 Ford pickup and a 2009 Toyota Tacoma, suffered extensive damage. The accident sent the Tacoma rolling upside down.

    Chelsea fire crews extricated three people trapped inside the two trucks in less than 20 minutes.

    Police say all three victims suffered significant injuries, although none were considered life-threatening.

    Thirty-seven-year-old Rowe Palmer and 50-year-old Monique Morin were transported to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta. Sixty-two-year-old Richard Morin was taken to a hospital in Lewiston.

    An investigation is ongoing.
