A Central Maine man is dead following a Tuesday afternoon crash in Canton, Maine.

According to an article in the KJ, 57-year-old Vince Wilder was fatally injured when his 2015 Toyota SUV collided with a Ford SUV on Canton Point Road.

A press release from the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office explains that, at about 12:30 PM, Wilder was driving westbound when he lost control of his vehicle.  Wilder's Toyota crossed the center line and collided with the Ford Escape, which was driven by 63-year-old Cynthia Melanson, of Dixfield, Maine.

The impact caused Wilder's vehicle to hit a Central Maine Power pole, causing a power outage.

The article goes on to explain that Melanson was taken to Rumford Community Hospital with injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening.

Canton Point Road was reportedly closed for several hours following the crash.

The Oxford Country Sheriff's Department continues to investigate the crash.
