Authorities say two people died in a head-on crash on Route 1 in Columbia.

We're told an SUV collided with a tractor-trailer just before 1:30 p.m. Friday.

83-year-old Darold Ames and a 14-year-old boy - both passengers in the SUV - were killed.

Authorities say 43-year-old Angela Skidgel of East Machias was driving.

We're told her vehicle crossed the center line and the driver of the truck couldn't avoid crashing into it.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital in Ellsworth with non-life threatening injuries.

The road was closed for several hours while emergency crews responded.

Authorities are investigating the crash.
