TREMONT, Maine — A Bass Harbor teenager was killed in a head-on collision on Route 102 Wednesday afternoon.

Michael Lewis, 16, was killed in the crash that occurred near the Rumill Road intersection at about 2:30 p.m., according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.

Lewis was driving a small pickup truck that collided with another pickup driven by Dacota Dow, 19, of Bar Harbor. The two vehicles collided in the center of the road, McCausland said.

Two passengers in Lewis’ vehicle, Erin Hanley, a teenager from Tremont, and her brother Patrick, 10, were taken by ambulance to MDI Hospital in Bar Harbor with injuries that were not life-threatening. Neither Dow nor a passenger in his pickup, Ian Hodgdon, 17, of Tremont, was injured in the crash.

Troopers from the Maine State Police remained on the scene into the evening investigating the accident.
