The accident happened just before 8:00 Wednesday morning on Route 3 in Morrill, near Higgins Hill Road. Public Safety spokesperson Katy England reports 34-year-old Nicholas Day of Belmont was traveling west on route 3 when his car crossed the center line, into the path of an oncoming loaded dump truck.
