CORINTH- One man is dead and another woman is in serious condition following that crash on route 15 in Corinth.
It happened just before six o’clock Monday night.
One car was traveling down Route 15 towards Bangor when another car either pulled out or tried to pull a u-turn when the two collided.
The driver of the car headed towards Bangor was taken by Life Flight to Eastern Maine Medical Center with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The man in the other car was pronounced dead on scene.
Crews say speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors, but remind the public of some tips to ensure safety on the road.
“Just drive within the speed limit, drive within your ability, use caution, especially on dark roads, back roads like this. Watch out for animals. And again, just use caution. There’s black ice, it’s cold out. Everyone’s windows and lights are covered with dust and dirt. Just be careful,” said Trooper Steve Morrell with the Maine State Police.
Officials are still working to notify family members of those involved.
The road is expected to be shut down for several hours as crews work to figure out what exactly happened.
