Nov. 5—Two juveniles were injured Friday afternoon during a single-vehicle crash in Augusta just outside the entrance to the Hatch Hill Solid Waste Facility, according to the Augusta Police Department.

Sgt. Desmond Nutter said at approximately 2 p.m. Friday at the intersection of South Belfast Avenue and Hatch Hill Road, two juveniles were riding in a vehicle when the vehicle left the road and struck a tree.

The occupants suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, Nutter said.

A number of vehicles stopped to assist, which prompted some to conclude a number of vehicles were involved in a crash.

The crash is under investigation, police said.
