Maine Police have released the identities of two people who died when their car collided with a log truck in Township 30.

Have Police Released Any Details About the Deceased?

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says State Police and the Washington County Sheriff's Office responded to a multi-vehicle crash on Route 9 in Township 30 at approximately 11:00 Wednesday morning. The crash was reported as involving a possible fatality. Deputies who first arrived at the scene confirmed there were two deceased adults in a small sedan. They have been identified as 35-year-old Tiffany Tinker, who was driving the car, and 36-year-old Jennifer Sutherland. Both women are from New Brunswick, Canada.

How Did the Crash Happen?

Police say the sedan containing the two women was traveling westbound on Route 9 when they encountered a loaded log truck on a curved road and the two vehicles collided. Officials say there were also two secondary crashes involving other tractor-trailers that did not contribute to any loss of life. The driver of the log truck was not injured.

Were Road Conditions a Factor in the Crash?

An initial investigation into the circumstances of the fatal crash indicates that Tinker lost control of her vehicle coming around a corner and entered into the path of the logging truck, which was unable to stop in time. Officials say road conditions appear to have been a factor in the crash.

This incident remains under investigation.
