WOOLWICH (AP) — Police said a Wiscasset man was killed and a 17-year-old Boothbay girl seriously injured in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Route 1 in Woolwich.

Sheriff Joel Merry said a northbound Jeep driven by 45-year-old Walter Crosman struck a Toyota sedan he was trying to pass at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The impact caused Crosman’s Jeep to swerve into the southbound side of the highway where it was struck by a Subaru station wagon driven by 17-year-old Emma Leonard.

Crosman was pronounced dead at the scene. Leonard was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The Toyota driver, a 25-year-old Brunswick woman, was not hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
