PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A three car crash on I-295 in Portland late this afternoon tied up traffic for about three-hours, and sent one person to the hospital with serious injuries.

It happened shortly after 4pm in the southbound lane between the Forest Avenue and FranklinStreet exits of 295.

Authorities say a Chevy Cruze --driven by a woman from Pennsylvania, was in the right lane when it was hit by a pick up truck. The Cruze was then struck by a third vehicle, a Chevy Equiniox driven by Dennis Carson of Portland. Carson's vehicle rolled over coming to rest on its side. A passenger riding with Carson was taken to the hospital and is listed in critical condition tonight.
