A New Hampshire man was taken to Central Main Medical Center in Lewiston by LifeFlight following a two-vehicle crash in Palermo the evening of Monday, Nov. 18.

The crash was reported at 6:35 p.m. after 20-year-old Derek Elvin, of Augusta, who was traveling north on Turner Ridge Road failed to stop at a stop sign and drove out onto Route 3 in front of 59-year-old Jeffrey Kahl of New Hampshire, Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff's Office said.

Trafton said Kahl's 2008 Toyota pickup truck hit Elvin's 2004 GMC SUV broadside, which pushed the GMC into the ditch where it caught fire.

Kahl's truck flipped onto its roof and Kahl had to be cut out of the vehicle, Trafton said. Kahl was then taken to Central Maine Medical Center by LifeFlight to be treated for a serious head wound, Trafton said.

Elvin was taken by ambulance to Maine General hospital in Augusta to be treated for non life-threatening injuries, Trafton said.

The crash is still under investigation and Trafton said he was unsure if charges would be filed.
