A motorcycle passenger from New Hampshire was seriously injured early Monday evening in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Meadow Road (Route 121) and Poland Spring Road (Route 11) in Casco that shut down traffic for about an hour.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office responded with Casco Fire/Rescue around 5:30 p.m. to the crash, involving a 2004 Honda Accord carrying two people and a 2014 Can-Am motorcycle, also carrying two. According to the sheriff’s office, the driver of the Honda failed to yield to the right-of-way of the motorcycle and collided with it in the middle of the intersection.
