One Person Killed and Three Injured in Multi-Car Crash
An 86-year-old man was killed and three other people, including his wife, were injured in a multi-car crash Saturday afternoon.
The BDN reports the accident happened at around 4:30 Saturday afternoon, on Route 2 in Dixfield near an MDOT garage. A Toyota sedan, driven by 86-year-old Paul Stucki of Winslow, was heading east when it crossed the center line and hit a second vehicle head-on. The driver of the second vehicle, 54-year-old June Lauter of Wisconsin and her passenger, Judith Lohr, suffered multiple fractures, but the injuries were considered non-life threatening.
Stucki's wife, Joyce, was in critical condition, at last report. A Ford truck, driven by Brad St. Pierre of Tospham, had to swerve to avoid hitting the two other vehicles. St. Pierre and his three juvenile passengers, were unhurt.
Police say speed, drugs, or alcohol don't appear to have been factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
