STANDISH — An elderly Standish man is dead and his wife critically injured following a crash in Standish that forced police to close a section of Route 25 for several hours Saturday evening.

Capt. Don Goulet of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that 84-year-old Arthur Ames of Standish was pulling out of an intersection when he drove into the path of a sports utility vehicle heading west.

Ames’ 2013 Nissan Sentra was hit in the front driver’s side door by 19-year-old Samantha Woodbrey of Cornish, who was operating a 2012 Jeep Liberty.

Ames and his wife, 85-year-old Evangeline Ames, were transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland where Arthur Ames later died from his injuries. Evangeline Ames was listed in critical condition Sunday evening by a hospital spokesperson.

Woodbrey was checked out and released from the scene of the crash. Goulet said it does not appear that speed or alcohol were factors in the accident.

The crash took place at the intersection of Manchester Road and Ossipee Trail West – also known as Route 25 – around 9:15 p.m. Saturday.

Cumberland County dispatch said the road reopened around 2 a.m. Sunday.
