HARRINGTON (AP) — Police say a Milbridge man has died in a head-on crash with a trash hauling truck in Harrington.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says 53-year-old Michael Strout was driving his pickup truck on Route 1A on Tuesday morning when he crossed the centerline and collided with the larger vehicle.
Strout, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His juvenile son was also in the vehicle, but was wearing a seat belt and was not seriously hurt. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The driver of the trash truck was also not hurt.
The crash remains under investigation but deputies say speed does not appear to be a factor.
