WELLS — A 5-year-old boy and a 57-year-old man were killed Friday afternoon when the car the man was driving was crushed by a truck on the Maine Turnpike.
York County Community Action volunteer Earl Gray of Waterboro was driving young Wyatt Frost on the turnpike when Gray had to slow down because of an unrelated second crash, according to Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety.
A box truck, driven by John Kamau of Lowell, Mass., struck the rear of Gray’s car and landed on top of it, McCausland said. The impact pushed Gray’s car into the rear of a tractor-trailer rig in front of it, McCausland said.
Both truck drivers were injured, but did not require hospitalization.
The driver in the unrelated crash on Interstate 95 was thrown from his vehicle at Mile 24 of the pike.

That driver suffered critical injuries, McCausland said in a news release.
