One dead, three injured in Limington crash | News
LIMINGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - York County Sheriff's Department says one woman is dead, and three others injured in an early Saturday morning crash.
York County Sheriff William King stated in a press release that a resident of Whaleback Road called the dispatch at approximately 3:45 a.m. Saturday, reporting a car had crashed in the woods and caught fire.
Sheriff King says 23-year-old Brandy Norton was pronounced deceased at the scene. 20-year-old Kyle Harmon of Windham, Patrick Cheney 23-years-old of Buxton, and Alexis Jongerden of Limington were transported to the Maine Medical Center in Portland. Harmon is listed in critical condition. Cheney and Jongerden's conditions were fair but stable at the time of this release.
Officials say the preliminary investigation indicates a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, driven by Harmon, was traveling west on Whaleback Road. King says it appears Cheney was in the front, and the other two passengers were in the rear.
On May 30th at approximately 3:45 AM, Limington Fire and Rescue and the York County Sheriff's Office were summoned to a one vehicle crash in front of 42 Whaleback Road in Limington.
The release says the vehicle appears to have been traveling too fast for the foggy conditions and left the roadway. The car struck a guardrail, may have gone airborne and crashed into some trees and rolled over.
The Sheriff says two people were ejected from the vehicle but did not identify them. King added one other victim had to be extricated from the wreckage.
Norton was pronounced dead at the scene. The other victims were taken by ambulance to Maine Medical Center.
King expects Whaleback Road to be closed until noon Saturday so officials can reconstruct the accident.
