SANFORD, Maine — A York County woman was killed over the weekend when a vehicle she was a passenger in was broadsided, according to police.

Marlene Lewis, 73, of Shapleigh was pronounced dead at the scene, Sanford Deputy Chief Tim Strout said Monday.

Shirley Clements, 70, of Sanford, driver of a 1996 Toyota that Lewis was traveling in, was heading southbound on Main Street on Saturday and attempted to turn left into a shopping plaza, Strout said, when a 2003 Chevrolet heading north slammed into the passenger door of the Toyota.

Clements was taken to Goodall Hospital in Sanford for a possible broken leg, Strout said. The occupant of the other vehicle was not injured.

Lewis was among six people who died on Maine roadways this weekend, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. That brings the state’s total for the year to 46, compared with 30 at this point in 2011.
