ELLSWORTH – One motorist died and three others were hospitalized in a crash that tied up an eastern Maine highway for hours.

The occupants of the truck — two grandparents and their granddaughter — were taken to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth with injuries that were not life-threatening.
