Massachusetts Man Killed In Fiery Crash in Maine
A man from Massachusetts was killed when his speeding car crashed into another vehicle late Friday night in Norway.
William Stella, 36, of Stoneham, Mass., was the driver of a vehicle being chased by a deputy from the Oxford Sheriff's Office a few minutes earlier after it was doing donuts in the middle of Main St in South Paris.
The deputy had ended the pursuit before the crash took place.
Being treated for non life threatening injuries at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston is Jennifer Clough, 42, of Norway, the driver of the other vehicle.
Troopers said Stella's speeding Nissan 350Z slammed into Clough's car on Route 118, near the Watson Road intersection, about 11:15pm. Stella had lost control of his car, it spun around in the road and then collided with Clough's car head on.
Deputy Christopher Davis attempted to pull over Stella's car in South Paris, but it took off at a high rate of speed. The crash distance was about seven miles away from where the incident began.
Clough's car also caught fire and Davis and a Norway police officer were able to free Clough from the wreckage, while awaiting an ambulance
Stella's car then came to rest in woods along the road and caught fire.
