80-Year-Old Woman Killed, 2 Others Injured in Maine


Police say an 80-year-old Maine woman was killed and two other people were hurt in a wrong-way crash. 

Police said Sunday that Gail "Jane" Sumner, of Hiram, died instantly in the Friday's crash in Brownfield. 

The Portland Press Herald reports that Sumner was a passenger in a car driven by a 70-year-old man that crossed the center line on Route 113, hitting a car going the other direction. The 70-year-old man and the driver of the other car were both taken to a hospital for injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening. 

Police are still investigating. They do not believe speed or alcohol played a part in the crash.
