DEDHAM — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department says a two-car collision has claimed a Coast Guard family based in Down East Maine.

Deputies say 34-year-old Carlos Tapia was killed, along with his wife, 23-year-old Rachelle Tapia, and Rachelle Tapia’s 4-year-old daughter, Mackenzie Gray. The Coast Guard says Tapia was a petty officer third class who served as a machinery technician at the Coast Guard station in Jonesport.

Investigators say it appears that Carlos Tapia’s car failed to negotiate a curve, causing his car to cross into the path of an oncoming vehicle on Route 1A in Dedham.

Deputies say the driver of the other vehicle suffered a broken ankle and leg injuries in the collision at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
