The Maine State Police responded to Route 1 in Township 7 for a two-vehicle motor vehicle crash with serious injuries.
Trooper Dana Austin arrived on scene and determined one of the operators of a pickup truck, (a 51-year-old female from Gouldsboro) was pronounced deceased at the scene. It appears the operator of the pickup truck, for an unknown reason, crossed over the yellow center line and struck a Ford F-550 dump body truck head-on. The operator of that truck (a 37-year-old male from Columbia) was transported to Northern Light Maine Coast for non-life-threatening injuries.
Trooper Austin was assisted at the scene by Sergeant Jason Sattler, Trooper Clifford Peterson, Trooper Darren Vittum, the Ellsworth Police Department, the Gouldsboro Police Department, Gouldsboro Fire Department, Steuben Fire Department, and the Sullivan Fire Department.
