LEWISTON – A Lewiston woman injured early Monday morning in a fatal accident on Route 126 was discharged from the hospital Tuesday morning, according to an employee at Central Maine Medical Center.

Sareya Abdi, 38, was taken to Central Maine Medical Center, along with passenger Mwavita Echa Kiza, 48, also of Lewiston, following the crash.

The driver, Wabah Sahal Salat, 60, of Lewiston, and a third passenger, Shariffa Shale Ali, 48, also of Lewiston died when the SUV plowed into a beverage truck at Oak Hill Cash Market. According to police, the truck was legally parked with its flashers on while the driver unloaded cargo.
