BARING, Maine — A Princeton woman was killed Sunday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident on Route 1.

Lynn Roderick, 55, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to Maine State Trooper Chad Lindsey.

Her 8-year-old grandson, who was the only passenger in her vehicle, was treated for minor injuries at Calais Regional Hospital and released, the trooper said in a press release.

Roderick was driving north on Route 1 about 2:20 p.m. when she apparently attempted to pass another vehicle. Her blue Dodge Ram pickup truck struck a vehicle driven by Steven Scott, 47, of Calais head-on, sending both vehicles careening off the road, according to Lindsey.

Roderick, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected through the passenger’s window of her truck.

Scott also was taken to the Calais hospital where he was treated for lacerations and abrasions, the release said.

Maine State Police were assisted at the scene by U.S. Border Patrol, Baileyville Police, Calais and Baring Fire Departments and Downeast EMS.
