Car and tractor collide in Limington

LIMINGTON (WGME) -- An early morning crash involving a tractor and a car sends one person to the hospital in Limington.

The York County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened just after 4 a.m. Tuesday on Route 11 near Bracket's Apple Orchards.  They say Richard Chaput, 54, of Limerick, hit the back of a tractor operated by one of the orchard's employees. 

The tractor was on the way to spray one of the orchard's fields, and officers say Chaput did not see it as he rounded a corner in the road. 

Rescue crews had to cut him out of the vehicle.  Chaput is currently at Maine Medical Center with non-lifetreatening injuries. 

Route 11 was closed for several hours early Tuesday morning.
