Two people were hospitalized Wednesday afternoon when their car flipped off a bumpy dirt road in Old Town and into a small brook, authorities said.

The car’s driver lost control of the wheel on the dirt portion of College Avenue Extension, where a small brook crosses underneath the road through a large culvert, said Deputy Chief David Daniels of the Old Town Fire Department.

The car flipped into the brook and came to rest on its side, Daniels said. There were two unidentified passengers in the car, and one male passenger was able to free himself while first responders had to cut the other two out of the car using the Jaws of Life, he said. All of the car’s occupants were in their mid-20s, Daniels said.

Those passengers were transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center to be treated for unknown injuries which did not appear to be life threatening, Daniels said.

The Old Town Police Department is investigating the crash.
