Police say a car driven by Madison Martin, 28, of Augusta rear-ended one vehicle, then struck a second head on at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

WINDSOR, Maine (AP) _ Authorities say a three-car crash in Windsor sparked by drugs, speed and "erratic operation'' has left one person dead and four others injured, including a teenage girl witnesses say tried to grab the steering wheel of a speeding car from an out-of-control driver.

Police say a car driven by 28-year-old Madison Martin of Augusta rear-ended one vehicle, then struck a second head on at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Martin died at the scene. A 17-year-old girl in his vehicle who tried to wrest control of it, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Three people in the other two vehicles were also hospitalized.

Police say the crash remains under investigation, but witnesses tell the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/WaYrKI ) that Martin was driving at 100 miles per hour or more.
