HARRINGTON (AP) — Police say a Milbridge man has died in a head-on crash with a trash hauling truck in Harrington.

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.
