Woman killed when van slams into back of tractor-trailer in Auburn

A woman was killed Tuesday night in a crash just off the Maine Turnpike exit in Auburn, state police said.

State police said a short time before the crash, Wells's van had passed a state trooper in the southbound lane of the Maine Turnpike at an estimated speed of 100 miles per hour.

State troopers and Auburn police are investigating the crash, which was reported shortly after 10:30 p.m.

Maine Department of Transportation spokesman Ted Talbot said it is unusual for police to shut down the interstate in Greater Portland for such a long period.

A man died Tuesday night when his vehicle was rear-ended on Interstate 295 in Falmouth, according to state police.

The trooper had just flashed his lights on to pull her over, when the woman took the exit and crashed.

Wells then turned onto Washington Street and hit the tractor-trailer a few hundred yards later.
