Police say "seat belts and properly installed child safety seats played a vital role'' in preventing more serious injuries.

GORHAM, Maine (AP) _ Police say proper use of seat belts prevented more serious injuries in a pileup in Gorham that destroyed three vehicles.

Two people were taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening after the crash just before 5 p.m. Sunday at Main Street and Libby Avenue.

Police say a vehicle driven by 42-year-old Ronnie Willey of Gorham failed to yield and was broadsided by an SUV driven by 20-year-old Garrett Beesley. Willey's vehicle rolled over and came to rest on the hood of a car driven by 31-year-old Nikki Sproul of South Portland. At least two of the vehicles had child passengers.

Police say "seat belts and properly installed child safety seats played a vital role'' in preventing more serious injuries.

The accident remains under investigation.
