GORHAM — Gorham police said one person died Thursday when a dump truck lost control and rolled over onto a minivan on the Ossipee Trail near Wood Road.
Authorities said the eastbound truck swerved to avoid a pickup that had slowed to enter the Grondin gravel pit near Brandy Brook Hill. The dump truck lost control and hit a westbound minivan, then rolled over on the driver's side of the minivan, police said.
Killed in the crash was Marjorie Mullett, 68, of Dayton, the driver of the minivan. Her passenger, Gail Lavoie, 58, of Brownfield, and the dump truck driver, Ronald Pratt, 59, of Gray, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
The crash occurred at 9:06 a.m. at 75 Ossipee Trail, near the Grondin gravel pit. Police closed Ossipee Trail (Route 112/25) while investigating the crash.
