Kellerhals was transported by ambulance to Northern Light AR Gould Hospital in Presque Isle where she was pronounced dead. Drake died at the scene. A witness told police that they saw Drake speeding and not staying in his travel lane.
State police closed Route 1 for several hours in both directions while they investigated. The crash was reported at 3:49 p.m.
