According to police, road conditions played a role in the truck accident that took a woman’s life after her car crashed into a logging truck that was heading in the opposite direction.
The victim, Samantha Snyder, 20, of Charleston, died at the scene of the truck accident just before 7 a.m. on Route 11. She had been driving a 2001 blue Toyota Corolla when she crossed the center lane into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on with the logging truck.
Authorities believe Snyder lost control of the vehicle, leading her to cross into oncoming traffic. The road was covered in snow at the time of the incident which may have contributed to the crash.
The truck driver, Wyatt Astbury, 32, of Orland, was taken to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft as a precautionary measure. He is doing fine.
