Bath Maine Car Accident – Brunswick police has identified the four people involved in a fatal car accident on Friday night.
According to Chief of Brunswick Police Scott Stewart, dispatch received numerous 911 calls about a single-vehicle crash where the car reportedly crashed into a rock embankment and burst into flames with the occupants still inside.
Good Samaritans reportedly stopped to try to extinguish the fire and get everyone out of the car, he said.
Within moments, the car was fully engulfed in flames but helpers were able to pull two small children, a girl and a boy, from the back seat.
The young girl was transported to Mid Coast Hospital, however, died from her injuries. The boy was transported to Maine Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Stewart said the two adults in the front could not be easily freed due to large flames and high temperatures. The two were pronounced dead at the scene.
The people in the car are believed to be related.
