Trenton Man Dies In Route 1A Head-on Crash
A Trenton man died Wednesday in a head-on crash on Route 1A in Ellsworth.
Michael Mckee, 44, was ejected from his vehicle and died at the scene of the crash, which happened at about 10:30 p.m.
Mckee was driving a 2005 Jeep Wrangler. Police found the vehicle on the shoulder of the northbound lane with extensive front-end damage.
Police say it appears Mckee's vehicle crossed the centerline and collided with a 2017 Toyota truck driven by Richard Robbins, 68, of Surry. Robbins was taken to Northern Lights Maine Coast Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Robbins was subsequently charged with operating under the influence.
The accident remains under investigation.
