SCARBOROUGH — Four men were treated for injuries Wednesday afternoon at Maine Medical Center in Portland after a head-on collision on Route 1.

In a Sept. 8 press release the Police Department said the extent of the injuries has not been released, and the cause of the crash was still under investigation.

Donald Goff, 38, was driving on Route 1 around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning when he crossed the double yellow line into oncoming traffic, according to police.

Goff’s vehicle was then pushed into a telephone pole after colliding head-on with a Chevrolet 3500 dump truck that was towing an excavator.

Goff, James Sargent, 46, Santos Molina, 42, and an unidentified boy were transported to the hospital. Their addresses were released.

About 2 miles of Route 1 were shut down Wednesday for several hours between Cascade Road in Saco and Old Blue Point Road in Scarborough.
