STANDISH, Maine (AP) - Police say speed and icy road conditions appear to be factors in a fatal two-car crash in Standish.

Authorities say 53-year-old David Fortin of West Baldwin was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash just after 5 a.m. Wednesday on Route 35. Fortin was not wearing a seat belt.

Police say a westbound car driven by 38-year-old Vivian Densmore of Naples lost control on the slippery road at the crest of a hill, crossed into the eastbound lane and collided with Fortin’s car.

Densmore was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Both vehicles were totaled.

The crash remains under investigation but police say “imprudent” speed for the road conditions was likely a factor. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
