A 37-year-old Peru woman was killed Friday morning when her car collided with a logging truck on Route 108 in Peru.
Jane Jacques was driving a silver Volkswagen Passat north on Route 108 when her car and a southbound logging truck collided, said Oxford County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Wyman. The truck was driven by Ryan Tupick, 52, of Gorham, N.H., he said.
He said Jacques died at the scene.
Icy roads appear to have contributed to the crash, which happened around 7:15 a.m., Wyman said.
He said the fully-loaded logging truck, which was headed to the Verso paper mill in Jay, went down an embankment after the collision. Tupick walked away from the scene uninjured and the logs remained in the truck, Wyman said.
Route 108, also called Oxford Road, was closed until 4 p.m., he said.Leslie Bridgers can be contacted at 791-6364 or at: firstname.lastname@example.orgTwitter: lesliebridgers
