KITTERY, Maine — A Rhode Island woman killed in an accident on the Maine Turnpike Thursday was headed to her summer camp in Rangeley, according to police.

The victim has been identified as Christine Anderson, 59, of Smithfield, Rhode Island, according to Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Anderson and her husband, James, own the Rangeley camp.

Anderson was heading north at mile marker 2 when she was struck head-on by a tractor-trailer driven by Daniel Dunlea, 58, of Londonderry, New Hampshire, McCausland said.

Anderson was killed instantly, the state police spokesman said.

Dunlea’s truck, which was hauling a load of paper products for Reas Trucking, crossed the median before striking Anderson’s SUV head-on. The accident remains under investigation.
