A two-car crash in Eddington on Friday afternoon claimed the life of one person and sent three others to the hospital with serious injuries, state police said.

Brandon Cook, 18, of Greenbush died about 4 p.m. when the Volkswagen Jetta he was driving along Route 178 veered into the oncoming lane and struck a Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Abby Reynolds Danforth, 24, of Old Town, according to the police report.

Danforth and the passengers in Cook’s car — Alexis McKenzie, 16, and Avery Hallahan, 17, whose hometowns were not immediately available — suffered serious injuries and were brought to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

On Sunday morning, Eastern Maine listed Danforth’s condition as critical, McKenzie’s condition as serious and Hallahan’s as fair.

Police shut down Route 178, also known as Riverside Drive, until around 8 p.m. Friday.
