Massachusetts driver killed in crash on Maine Turnpike

WELLS, Maine (AP) — A Massachusetts driver who was apparently trying to reverse directions using a crossover lane for emergency vehicles was struck by a tractor-trailer on the Maine Turnpike, state police said.

Brian N. Anger, 52, of Auburn, Massachusetts, was pronounced dead at the scene late Thursday in Wells, troopers said.

The northbound tractor-trailer driver moved to the center lane after seeing a BMW operated by Anger in the breakdown lane. Then the BMW cut in front of the truck as if the driver intended to reverse directions using a crossover lane, troopers said.

The tractor-trailer driver suffered minor injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
