TOPSHAM, Maine — Police say a 90-year-old Maine woman was killed after the car she was riding in slammed head-on into a tractor-trailer along state Route 196.
The collision happened around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday near Rt. 196’s intersection with Harmony Hill Road in Topsham. A third vehicle was also involved in the accident.
Police say a chain reaction was set off when a GMC Envoy driven by a 32-year-old Lewiston man crossed the centerline and side-swiped the tractor-trailer.
The tractor-trailer then collided head-on with a Honda Civic driven by 61-year-old Barbara Brusila. Her passenger, 90-year-old Jean Brusila, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Barbara Brusila and the tractor-trailer driver both suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Topsham police are investigating the crash.
