GARDINER, Maine — Authorities say the driver of a cargo van that crashed in Gardiner last weekend, killing him and his adult grandson, was not legally allowed to drive.

The secretary of state’s office says 62-year-old Dennis Kay’s license had been suspended, which means he was not supposed to be behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Kay and his 25-year-old grandson, Carlton Norwood, died in the crash at about 8 a.m. last Saturday. Police believe neither man was wearing a seat belt.

A third man in the van was hurt.

The Kennebec Journal reports the men worked for a van rental company and were driving the van from Farmingdale to Windham.

Police say ice roads likely caused the crash.
