From Maine State Police:
On Wednesday, January 17, 2024, at approximately 11:00 am, the Maine State Police and the Washington County Sherriff’s Office were alerted to a multi-vehicle crash with a possible fatality on Route 9 in Township 30. Deputies were the first to arrive on scene and confirmed there were two deceased female adults in a 2014 Kia Forte. The two female occupants in the car were traveling westbound on Route 9 in Township 30 when they encountered a loaded log truck on a curved road and the vehicles collided. There were two secondary crashes with other tractor-trailers that did not contribute to any loss of life. The deceased have been identified as the driver 35-year-old Tiffany Tinker and passenger 36-year-old Jennifer Sutherland both of New Brunswick, Canada. The operator of the log truck was not injured. The preliminary investigation shows that the deceased lost control of their vehicle coming around a corner and entered into the oncoming lane of the log truck. Roadway conditions appear to have been a factor in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.
