Three Richmond men are expected to recover from injuries suffered after they were ejected from a car that went off Beedle Road in Richmond on Sunday afternoon.

Officer Doug Bellevue of the Richmond Police Department said a 2004 Dodge Neon driven by Scott Trask, 26, crashed through a guardrail around 1:35 p.m. Sunday on the stretch of road between Brown Road and Interstate 95 “due to a high rate of speed, at minimum.”

Bellevue said Trask and his two passengers, Cameron Blake, 25, and Dakota Roinstad, 18, weren’t wearing seat belts and were ejected from the totaled car, which kept rolling into a field. All suffered internal injuries and broken bones, Bellevue said.

Trask’s injuries were the most significant. He was taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, according to Bellevue, who said Trask was being moved from the hospital’s intensive care unit to his own room on Monday, when he posted pictures of the wrecked car on his Facebook page.

Bellevue said Blake and Roinstad were taken by ambulances to the Lewiston hospital and MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, respectively, and all three victims should recover. Trask is likely to face misdemeanor charges in connection with the accident after an examination of the car, said Richmond Police Chief Scott MacMaster.
