Edmunds Township Man Killed in Washington County Crash
Maine State Police say distracted driving is a possible cause of a crash in Pembroke that claimed the life of an Edmunds Township man.
Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says the crash happened at approximately 10:18 PM Thursday on the Ayers Junction Road in Pembroke.
A GMC Sonoma, driven by 17-year-old Russell Kirshman of Marion Township, crossed the centerline and struck a Toyota Camry head-on. The driver of the Camry, 58-year-old Hardy Preston of Edmunds Township, died at the scene. Kirshman was transported to Calais Regional Hospital for minor injuries.
Investigators say driving too fast for conditions and distracted driving appear to have been factors in this crash.
