A Winslow man and Skowhegan woman have been identified as the victims in a fatal head-on collision Friday night in Vassalboro, according to the Kennebec County sheriff.

Robert M. Trudeau, 55, was pronounced dead at the scene, and Brenda M. Clark, 61, was taken by ambulance to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, where she later died due to her injuries, according to Sheriff Ken Mason.

The crash occurred at 9:27 p.m. after Trudeau’s Jeep Liberty crossed the center line on U.S. Route 201 and collided with Clark’s Subaru, Mason said.

Witnesses reported Trudeau’s Jeep had been seen driving erratically on U.S. Route 201 just before the crash, but nothing so far indicates the collision was caused by alcohol or weather conditions, according to Mason, who said neither driver was wearing a seat belt.

Both vehicles have been impounded while the accident is being investigated.
