Two people are dead and three others remain hospitalized following a head-on collision Saturday afternoon on Route 1 in the Waldo County town of Stockton Springs.

Sgt. James Greeley of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office said a car driven by Denise Shuck, 44, was headed north when it was struck by another vehicle. Shuck, whose hometown was not released, died at the scene. She is from out of state, according to the sheriff’s office.

The second vehicle, which was carrying four people from Maine, was heading south about one mile south the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. A passenger in that car, Frederick Carter, 65, died Saturday evening at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The other three people, who were not identified, were taken to Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Because the accident remains under investigation, police said they are not prepared to say which vehicle crossed over the centerline. The accident was reported at 4:54 p.m.
