The Associated Press

PROSPECT — Police say one man has died and two other people have been hospitalized following a three-vehicle crash in Prospect.

The Waldo County Sheriff's Office tells WABI-TV that officers responded to the crash on Route 1A just before 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Deputies say a witness told them one car crossed the centerline and crashed head on into a second vehicle. A third vehicle came upon the scene and could not stop in time.

Deputies tell WZON-AM that the driver of the vehicle that apparently crossed the centerline, 79-year-old William Dunham of Frankfort, died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt.

The driver and a passenger in the second vehicle were hospitalized.

The road was wet at the time.
