WILTON — Wilton police are investigating a fatal
accident involving a car, pickup truck and tractor-trailer Thursday afternoon on
Route 2 just west of East Dixfield village.

Extensive debris on both sides of the highway and
diesel fuel leaking from the B. D. S. Waste Disposal Inc. tractor-trailer out of
Corinna, forced a miles-long detour for Route 2 traffic through Canton and Jay
after police and Wilton, Dixfield and East Dixfield firefighters shut the road
down.

The accident happened at about 2:10 p.m. State
police accident reconstructionists were on scene by about 3 p.m.

Two NorthStar Ambulance crews tended to possibly
injured motorists.
