Authorities say the crash happened around 1:12 p.m. Wednesday in Bowdoin. Police say 37-year-old Amanda Gauvin, of Lewiston, failed to stop at a stop sign. Investigators say Gauvin's car was struck on the driver's side in the intersection by an SUV driven by 29-year-old Geraldine Scanlon, of Sabattus.

Gauvin died at the scene. Police say Scanlon was not injured in the crash.
