2 killed in Maine crash, including 5-year-old boy

WELLS, Maine (AP) — Authorities in Maine have identified two victims killed in an accident on the Maine Turnpike in Wells as a 57-year-old man and a 5-year-old boy.

Police say the car in which Earl Gray of Waterboro was driving and Wyatt Frost of Lyman was a passenger was hit from behind by a truck on Friday afternoon.

Police said Gray was a volunteer driver with York County Community Action and had provided transportation to the boy for a couple of years. The two died when a box truck struck the rear of Gray’s car and then landed on top of it.

Police said the driver of the box truck that struck Gray’s car was 56 year old John Kamau of Lowell, Massachusetts. Kamau was delivering mail from New Hampshire to Portland.
