Two people died Monday afternoon in a single-vehicle, rollover crash on Interstate 95 in Howland.

The driver -- Michael Dentico, 63, of Arundel -- died at the scene. A passenger -- Jacqueline Gordon (66) of Ellsworth -- died en route to the hospital.

A second passenger, Tammy Dentico, 43, of Arundel had minor injuries

Witnesses told troopers the 2004 Chevrolet pickup drifted into the median before abruptly veering back across both lanes and into the ditch on the right side of the road.  The truck overturned ejecting both Dentico and Gordon.  A preliminary investigation indicates Dentico fell asleep at the wheel.

The crash took place in the northbound lanes near mile 217.
