Q106.5 reports the accident led to the closure of Route 1A near the Brewer-Holden town line. At about 11:30 a.m., a dispatcher at the Penobscot Regional Communications Center said the road was closed in both directions. The dispatcher said CPR was being performed on one of the victims.

Chief Greeley said the accident is not related to Thursday's night's major storm as roads were clear and the snow had started. The fatal crash is under investigation.
