LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — A Winthrop woman has died in the hospital four days after getting injured in a traffic crash that took the life of her husband.

Police and relatives say 74-year-old Patricia St. Laurent died Monday afternoon at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

St. Laurent was flown to the hospital Thursday morning after the van in which she was a passenger was struck by a box truck on U.S. Route 202.

St. Laurent’s husband, 80-year-old Napoleon Richard St. Laurent, was pronounced dead at the scene.
