A Farmington man who was seriously injured after colliding with a tractor-trailer in Kingfield on Nov. 27 has died.
Leroy Gordon, 76, died Friday evening at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, according to the Sun Journal.
Police have said that Gordon was traveling south on Route 27 in a 1997 Subaru Legacy about 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 during a snowstorm when his Subaru lost traction and skidded into the path of a northbound tractor-trailer driven by Cedrick Allaire, 25, of Westbury, Quebec.
Gordon’s grandson, 28-year-old Seth Gordon of Farmington, died instantly, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Leroy Gordon’s step-great-grandson, 18-year-old Scott Kidder of Farmington, was seriously injured and hospitalized at Central Maine Medical Center. A hospital spokesman told the Sun Journal that Kidder has been discharged.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was uninjured.
Speed does not appear to have been a factor in the crash, the sheriff’s office has said. Road conditions were poor at the time of the collision because of the Nov. 27 snowstorm that dumped several inches of snow over the western mountains, the sheriff’s office has said.
