Man Dies in Car Crash a Mile From Where Mom Was Killed Last Week

Police in Maine say a 32-year-old man has died in a car crash close to the site of a crash that killed his mother last week. 

Police say Alexander Gardner's truck slammed into a tree while speeding at a curve in the road in Alton. The crash was discovered on Friday morning and police believe the crash happened during the previous night. 

Gardner's mother, 63-year-old Robin Gardner, was killed on Nov. 24 about a mile away when her car was struck head-on by another vehicle. The other driver in that case was charged with manslaughter. 

Anyone who had contact with Gardner or saw his truck Thursday night is asked to contact police at 207-973-3700.
