A Maine man involved in a crash on the interstate was killed last night, Feb. 24, in Litchfield.
Maine State Troopers responded to a crash near mile marker 95 on I-95 in Litchfield. The driver of an RV motorhome was traveling northbound on I-95 in the travel lane when a blue GMC pickup truck came up behind the RV and attempted to pass it in the passing lane. The driver of the pick-up truck lost control of his vehicle, striking the guardrail and then hitting the RV forcing both vehicles into the median.
The driver of the pick-up was ejected from the vehicle and moments later was struck by a third and fourth vehicle traveling in the same direction. The driver of the pickup truck was pronounced dead at the scene.
The name of the deceased is 35-year-old Brandon Currie of Newport, ME.
The driver of the RV, who is from Maine, and the drivers of the other two vehicles involved were not injured.
I-95 NB was shut down for about three hours while the Maine State Police reconstructed the crash scene. The crash remains under investigation.
