Man Dead and Woman Injured in Newburgh Accident

Authorities say one man is dead and one woman is injured after an accident with a Maine DOT plow Wednesday night in Newburgh.

Anthony Takacs was pronounced dead on the scene.  State Police say it appears Takacs lost control while driving on the snowy road and struck a plow.

They say it happened around 9 pm on Western Avenue about a mile past the Newburgh Fire Station.

Takacs, 24, was driving with Nicole Wentworth, also 24.  Wentworth was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.  Both are from Albion.

“Coming down the hill it lost control, crossed the center line and struck the plow truck in the front end in the plow.
From all indications, initially, the driver of the plow truck tried to move over as far as he could to the right, but with the snow banks, you can see, there’s really not a whole lot of places you can go,” said Trooper Douglas Franklin.

They say the driver of the plow truck was uninjured.

The accident is still under investigation.

They say the driver will be taken to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
