GLENBURN, Maine — A 22-year-old Hudson woman died instantly Monday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on Pushaw Road, according to the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver of a pickup truck and his passenger were taken to St. Joseph Hospital and Eastern Maine Medical Center, respectively, for minor injuries, Deputy Sean McCue said Monday night.

The men, both 20, were treated and released. One lives in Orono and the other lives in Glenburn, the deputy said.

The names of those involved in the accident were being withheld pending notification of family members, he said.

The accident occurred about 1 p.m. on Pushaw Road near Skidgel Road.

The Hudson woman was headed north on the road toward Hudson when she lost control of her 2001 Ford Taurus, which crossed the centerline.

A 1996 GMC pickup truck headed in the opposite direction broadsided her car on the passenger side.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, McCue said. The passenger was not and sustained facial cuts and abrasions when his face hit the windshield.

The accident is being reconstructed, according to the deputy. He said the victim was traveling too fast for road conditions.

More information is expected to be released Tuesday.
