WILTON — Police identified Joseph Breton, 36, of Jay, as the second person killed in a crash Monday afternoon on U.S. Route 2 in Wilton, which also claimed the life of a New Vineyard woman.

Meta Sevigny, 80, and Breton both died at the scene of the crash, which involved three vehicles traveling on the icy stretch of highway just before 4 p.m. Two other men involved in the crash remained in the hospital Tuesday afternoon.

Sevigny was a passenger in a 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck being driven by David Miller, 44, of Wilton, who was taken by ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington after the crash.

Miller was transferred to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and listed in fair condition Tuesday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Carlton Elliott, 22, of Industry, was also injured in the crash and taken by ambulance to the Farmington hospital, where he was in stable condition Tuesday afternoon, said Wilton police Chief Heidi Wilcox.

Elliott was a passenger in the 2004 Chrysler Sebring driven by Breton. A 2000 Saturn sedan also was involved in the crash, driven by Thomas Lake, 50, of Jay, who was not hurt.

Wilcox has yet to give details about what happened in the crash, saying the cause remains under investigation and that further information probably would be released today.

The crash happened near the entrance to the Comfort Inn in Wilton, just southwest of Franklin Memorial Hospital.

Traffic on U.S. Route 2 heading southwest from Farmington toward Wilton was detoured onto Route 133 for about two hours after the crash.

Sgt. Richard Billian of the Wilton Police Department is leading the crash investigation, with accident reconstruction and forensic mapping of the scene conducted by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, Wilcox said.
