WARREN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Two of the drivers involved in a three-car crash in Warren were killed on Monday morning.
The Knox County Sheriff's Office said a car driven by 57-year-old Kenneth Chipman III of Warren crossed the center line as it was traveling northbound on Route 1 near the intersection of Stirling Road. At the same time, 32-year-old Evan Aurelia of Winterport was heading southbound in his SUV. As the two vehicles collided, Chipman's vehicle was sent into a spin and collided again with another SUV driven by 67-year-old Cheryl Brimson of Rockport.
