Two men, one from Maine, one from New Hampshire, are dead following an early Sunday morning crash in the Western Maine town of Hanover.

According to WABI TV, the crash happened at about 2 AM on Sunday on Main Street in the Town of Hanover.

Police say that 36 year old Nathaniel Skillin of Dixfield, Maine was heading Westward when his car crossed the center line.

The car crashed into a vehicle driven by 55 year old Rodger Beaudoin of Berlin, New Hampshire.

Skillin was reportedly killed in the crash and Beaudoin's car caught fire.

The two passengers in Beaudoin's car were able to escape and were taken to a nearby hospital, but Beaudoin passed away at the scene.

While police are still investigating, they say that road conditions and "driver impairment" could have something to do with the accident.
