Two women tragically died on Tuesday morning after their vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer near the intersection of Hallowell and Lewiston roads in Litchfield.
According to the Lewiston-Auburn Sun Journal, a passenger vehicle traveling north on Hallowell was broadsided by a tractor-trailer traveling west on Lewiston Road.
The 92-year-old driver, Grace Marston, died that evening at a Lewiston hospital, while her passenger, Anita A. died immediately after the collision. The 14-year-old girl in the backseat only suffered from minor injuries, and was also taken to the same hospital Marston died in.
Robet Morang, the driver of the tractor trailer, was not hurt during the collision and was later investigated to see if drugs or alcohol were factors of the accident, but officials later announced this was not the case.
