ORLAND, Maine (AP) _ Police say a 21-year-old man has died in a head-on crash on U.S. Route 1 in Orland, and the weather may have been a factor.

Authorities say the victim was headed north just after 4 p.m. Monday when he lost control and his car crossed the center line, colliding head-on with another vehicle.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Names were not immediately available.

The crash remains under investigation but police say roads were slushy and icy at the time.
