Two women died after their car collided with a tractor-trailer Tuesday morning at Route 126 and Hallowell Road in Litchfield.

Anita Wade, 82, of West Gardiner died in the accident, said Kennebec County Sheriff Ryan Reardon. Wade was in the front passenger seat of a car driven by Grace Marston, 92, also of West Gardiner.

Marston was taken by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with reported life-threatening injuries, including head trauma. Reardon reported just before 9 p.m. Tuesday that she had died.

A third person in the accident, a 14-year-old girl, was taken to a Lewiston hospital by ambulance with less severe injuries.

Reardon said Marston was driving a Chevrolet Impala, crossing from Hallowell Road onto Hallowell-Litchfield Road, when her car collided with a tractor-trailer driven by Robert Morang, 67, of Chelsea, which was empty at the time and heading south on Route 126/9 toward Tacoma Lakes. His vehicle is owned by Steven A. McGee Construction.

Morang was uninjured and spoke to law enforcement officers at the scene, Reardon said.

The crash was called in around 11 a.m., and emergency responders called for extrication tools as well as an officer to do reconstruction. EMS personnel arrived first and reported that the sedan was partially lodged under the front end of the tractor-trailer, and both vehicles were in a ditch.

Reardon said a blood test would be done on the tractor-trailer driver, as is usual in serious crashes, but there was no indication he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Responders from Litchfield, Gardiner and Monmouth assisted with the scene.

The road reopened shortly after 4 p.m.
