Houlton Man Killed in Crash with Tractor-Trailer
A Houlton man died Thursday morning when his pickup truck collided with a tractor-trailer on Route 1 in Topsfield.
Tyler Dwyer, 30, was deceased at the scene and a passenger of that pickup truck was injured, according to police.
Police say it appears Dwyer's southbound truck crossed into the northbound lane just after 9 a.m., when it struck the tractor-trailer, driven by Gregory Worster, 58, of Kingman.
Police say failure to maintain the proper lane and fatigue appear to be factors in the crash.
The 2009 Ford pick-up truck is owned by Bushwacker and Sons Logging of Cary.
The 2020 Peterbilt tractor-trailer is owned by C&C Trucking of Lincoln.
A crash reconstruction and forensic mapping are being conducted. The investigation is continuing.
