A Bar Harbor man was killed in a head-on collision Tuesday on Mount Desert Island.
Mount Desert Island Police told WABI-TV that it was just after 2:30 Tuesday afternoon when a car, driven by 70-year-old Susan Edson of Bernard, crossed the center line on State Highway 102 and struck another vehicle head-on. The driver of that vehicle, 72-year-old Edward Wells of Bar Harbor, died in the accident. A third vehicle crashed into a group of trees, while trying to avoid the collision. Edson was transported to MDI Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The accident, that happened just north of the Hall Quarry Road intersection, remains under investigation.
