HOLDEN, Maine (WABI) - An Ellsworth man was killed in a crash on Route 1A in Holden.

It happened around 9:30 Monday morning.

Holden Police Chief Chris Greeley says one vehicle drifted into oncoming traffic and hit another vehicle.

Greeley says 62-year-old Joseph Wadman died at the scene.

He stresses the importance of using caution while driving through this heavily traveled area.

“Literally tens of thousands of cars somedays and DOT has done its best to widen the road, to put a center turning lane in. Holden Police Department has a constant presence out here and it’s a nice day so weather shouldn’t have been a factor. It’s very unfortunate,” said Chief Greeley.
