WINSLOW, Maine — Maine State Police is investigating a motorcycle crash in Winslow that killed one person over the weekend.

Maine's public information officer Shannon Moss said Maine State Police and the Winslow Police Department responded to a motorcycle crash at 11 p.m. Saturday, June 11. She said it happened in front of Augusta Cash Fuel on Route 201 in Winslow.
