PORTER, Maine — Authorities say a New Hampshire teenager was killed and his two passengers were injured in a car crash in western Maine.

Steve McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department says the one-car crash occurred Sunday afternoon on Route 25 in Porter.

He says 18-year-old Darren Duncanson of New Durham, N.H., lost control of the car while making a series of turns. The car rolled over and slammed into several trees. McCausland says Duncanson, who wasn’t wearing his seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His passengers, a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy, were taken to a Portland hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.

State police are investigating the crash. printed on April 25, 2017
