Fourteen killed after van falls into Maine river
ALLAGASH WILDERNESS WATERWAY, Maine -- A van full of migrant workers veered off a one-lane bridge and plunged into a river in the northern Maine wilderness Thursday, killing 14 men in the deadliest traffic accident in state history, officials said.
The lone survivor escaped through the back window as the van sank in 15 feet of water 90 miles from the nearest paved state road, said Stephen McCausland of the Maine Public Safety Department. The accident happened on an unpaved logging road near the entrance to the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, a state-administered area 300 miles north of Portland.
