BLUE HILL — A Stonington man died Tuesday after his pickup truck entered an oncoming lane, hitting another pickup truck nearly head-on on the Ellsworth Road in Blue Hill, Hancock County Sheriff’s Lt. Tim Cote reported.

Richard D. Goodwin, 53, died at the scene, Cote said. 

Goodwin’s westbound 2014 GMC entered the eastbound lane, striking a 2020 Chevrolet operated by Bill Webb, 47, of Blue Hill, police reported. Both trucks came to rest in the eastbound lane.

Webb was injured and his wife, Doris Webb, 45, suffered serious injuries, police said. Both were taken to Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital.

“The cause and contributing factors of the accident remain under investigation,” Cote said. The crash occurred at 4:45 p.m. near the Blue Hill-Surry Transfer Station.

Deputy Dylan Hall is the primary investigating officer. Chief Deputy Patrick Kane and Deputy Brian Archer assisted. The Maine State Police also assisted.

The Blue Hill and Surry fire departments also responded along with Peninsula Ambulance and Northern Light Ambulance Service.

Hancock County Sheriff’s Detective Jacob Day will reconstruct the crash with help from Maine State Police Trooper Joshua Lander.
