FARMINGTON — Police Chief Jack Peck on Wednesday identified the woman killed in a head-on collision Tuesday evening as Tacy Taylor, 59, of Farmington.

The reason her 2003 Ford Windstar van crossed the centerline on Farmington Falls Road and collided with a Dead River Co. oil tanker is still under investigation, he said.

The 2007 Freightliner fuel truck was driven by Daniel Reville, 26, of Farmington. Neither he nor his passenger, Malcolm Sweetser, 55, of Farmington, were injured, Peck said. Both are employees of Dead River Co.

The truck, which was carrying about 800 gallons of kerosene and fuel oil, tipped on its side and spilled a large amount of fuel on the road, he said. The fuel was quickly contained by members of Farmington Fire and Rescue and Farmington Public Works Department. The Department of Environmental Protection was also called to the scene, Peck said.

New Sharon Fire Department and NorthStar Ambulance also assisted at the scene.
