OXFORD, Maine (AP) — Maine police say a pickup truck hit and killed two pedestrians crossing the road in Oxford.
Oxford Police Chief Jon Tibbets says the Tuesday night collision was a confirmed double fatality, and both men, who were from Rhode Island, were killed. The Lewiston Sun-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2vZWryc ) that the men were crossing the road, heading from the Oxford Casino to a hotel across the road.
The driver stopped at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.
Authorities say the two men, 31-year-old Daniel Mercado, of Providence, and 55-year-old Ronald Nobrega, of Smithfield, were in town on business and were walking to their hotel.
