OXFORD – Police are trying to figure out what caused an accident that left two men dead last night in Oxford.
Officials said it appears the two men were crossing the road in front of the Oxford Casino when they were struck by a pickup truck.
It was around 11:00 p.m. when the accident happened on Route 26.
Officials said the men left the casino and were heading to the Hampton Inn across the street when they were hit by a truck driven by Christine Campbell, 70, of New Hampshire.
The victims have been identified as Daniel Mercado, 32, and Rondald Nodrega, 55, both of Rhode Island.
Police said there’s no crosswalk in front of the casino and the lighting is poor. Witnesses said there were three cars coming and the men tried to cross after the first car.
Campbell didn’t see them until it was too late.
