STANDISH — One person was killed in a two-car accident early this morning on Oak Hill Road in Standish, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Investigators said more details should be made available on Monday.

Chief Deputy Kevin Joyce in a press release issued this afternoon said “that due to the complexity of this particular crash” a news conference will be held at 11 a.m. Monday in Portland to discuss the details surrounding the department’s investigation.

Joyce confirmed that a 46-year-old woman was killed in the crash, which took place at 12:22 a.m. Sunday. Joyce declined to identify the woman or where she lived, adding that investigators were still trying to notify her relatives.

Four other people, all with non-life threatening injuries, required medical attention as a result of the accident.

One person landed in a stream. Another person was ejected from a vehicle and landed in a tree, according to Joyce. But Joyce said he could not go into greater detail as the department tries to reconstruct what happened.

“We are still chasing down leads,” Joyce said Sunday night. “We are still trying to figure out what happened.”
