YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - York Police say a Massachusetts man was transported to Maine Medical Center via LifeFlight after an early Sunday morning car crash.
Sgt. Brian Curtin of the York Police Department says 37-year-old Linh Ngoc Lu of Haverhill, Massachusetts was travelling north on US Route 1 near the Ogunquit/York town line at the time of the accident.
Curtin says it appears Lu's 2008 BMW left the road, severed a utility pole, travelled down an embankment and struck a tree.
Officials said when they arrived on scene, Lu was unconscious and trapped in the severely damaged vehicle. Curtin said it took Ogunquit, York and York Beach responders nearly 45 minutes to extricate Lu.
Curtain said initial investigation indicated speed was a factor in the crash, but a more thorough investigation will take place Sunday.
