PALERMO (AP) — Maine State Police say a 27-year-old man has died of his injuries resulting from a crash in Palermo.
Police say Dean Camacho of Waterville died during the night at Maine Medical Center in Portland, where he was taken after Wednesday’s accident.
Camacho was a passenger in a Jeep driven by 23-year-old Christian Arsenault of China. Arsenault lost control of his vehicle on a curve, causing it to slam into an oncoming tractor trailer early Wednesday morning. Arsenault remains in critical condition at the Portland hospital.
Troopers say speed was the cause of the crash and the snowy weather played no role.
