A crash in Orland early Saturday morning left three people with serious injuries.

Authorities say they responded to a two-car crash on Acadia Highway around 6:30 a.m.

Officials say a 17-year-old female from Bucksport crossed the center line and struck a van driven by 70-year-old Danny Jones of Florida head-on.

We're told the 17-year-old sustained serious injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Police say Jones and his passenger 65-year-old Linda Starkweather of New York both sustained significant injuries and were also taken to the hospital.

The crash remains under investigation.

Officials are also warning folks to slow down, stay alert, and obey the directions of first responders at emergency scenes after the Orland Fire Department says they had a close call at the scene.

We're told one person ignored directions of first responders and drove through the middle of the scene.

Officials say that poses a serious risk for crews at emergency scenes and can result in a $325 fine.

The members of the Orland Fire Department ask that you slow down, stay alert and obey the directions of first responders...
