A Rumford man died Monday afternoon after a head-on collision with a pickup truck in Oxford County.

The Sun Journal reports that James Luckern, 39, was driving along Route 108, also known as Auburn Road, in Peru about 2:30 p.m. when he lost control of his sedan on the snow-covered road, crossed the centerline and collided with a pickup truck driven by 62-year-old Earl Micklon of Norway.

Micklon was hospitalized with minor injuries, and Luckern died in the crash, the Journal reports.

The Auburn Road was closed for several hours while police cleared the scene.
