WALDOBORO, Maine — A two-car crash around 11 a.m. Friday on Route 1 killed a passenger and sent another three people to the hospital, according to authorities.

Waldoboro police Officer Tom Hoepner said a full-size Chevy pickup truck and a Honda CRV were involved in the accident about a quarter-mile north of Route 235. The crash is under investigation.

Part of Route 1 was closed from about 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The person who died as a result of the crash was identified as a passenger in the pickup. The driver of the pickup and the other passenger in the vehicle also were injured and were taken to the hospital, Hoepner said.

The driver of the Honda CRV, the only person in vehicle, also was hospitalized.

Details about the circumstances of the crash are pending while the accident is reconstructed, Hoepner said, and the names of those involved probably won’t be released until Saturday, after family members have been notified.
