Bangor Daily News reports, Maine state troopers yesterday pursued an erratic turnpike driver from Kennebunk through York until the vehicle finally crashed in the center median. The driver and three troopers were injured in the incident, which clogged both north- and southbound lanes. During the traffic backup, a commercial truck collided with the car ahead of it, pushing the car under another tractor-trailer and causing the death of the driver.
