PORTER — Authorities say a New Hampshire teenager was killed and his two passengers were injured in a car crash in western Maine.

Steve McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department says the one-car crash occurred Sunday afternoon on Route 25 in Porter.

He says 18-year-old Darren Duncanson of New Durham, N.H., lost control of the car and it rolled over and slammed into several trees. McCausland says Duncanson, who wasn’t wearing his seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

His passengers, a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy, were taken to a Portland hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.

State police are investigating the crash.
