RAYMOND, Maine — Two people were injured in a crash in Raymond early Tuesday morning.

Officials responded to the scene on Webbs Mills Road around 2 a.m. and found that a Volkswagen Passat had hit a utility pole.

The driver, Lucas Gaudin, 18, and his passenger, a 16-year-old girl, were both injured and taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland, according to Sgt. Matthew Tuffs of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office. Tuffs said their injuries are not considered life-threatening.

Officials had to pull the 16-year-old passenger out of the vehicle, which came to rest upside down in a ditch. Tuffs said Gaudin was up and walking when officials arrived at the scene.

Excessive speed is believed to be the cause of the crash, according to Tuffs.

Central Maine Power crews were in the area Tuesday morning to repair the pole.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing. Tuffs said investigators used a drone to get video of the crash site Tuesday morning.
