Two motorcyclists were killed on Interstate 95 in Augusta after a collision with a pickup truck.

Information released last week misidentified the motorcyclist who on Sept. 10 veered into a passing lane on Interstate 95, causing a crash that left two dead, Maine State Police said Wednesday.

“Based on new information, troopers now say that the motorcycle that veered into the passing lane and collided with a pickup truck was operated by 25-year-old Aaron White-Sevigny of Windsor,” Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said in an email.

White-Sevigny died from injuries suffered in the crash, as did a second motorcyclist, Jamie Gross, 58, of Belmont.

“Last week, Gross was identified as the operator who veered into the passing lane that set off the chain reaction crash involving the pickup truck and several motorcycles,” McCausland said.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash, he said. The correction was was issued based on interviews and examinations of the motorcycles.

The crash took place in the northbound lanes of I-95 during the United Bikers of Maine Toy Run as about 3,000 motorcycles were taking part in the event from the Augusta Civic Center to the Windsor Fairgrounds.
