Harpswell crash kills Brunswick man

HARPSWELL, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – Cumberland County Sheriffs say one man is dead following a two vehicle accident Saturday night.

Cumberland County Sheriff's Lt. Donald Foss says 28-year-old Eric Allred of Brunswick, died from injuries caused by the crash.

Officials say Allred was traveling northbound on the Harpswell Islands Road and lost control and went into the southbound lane and crashed into a second vehicle. The second vehicle was driven by Lauren Caswell, 39-year-old from Vermont. Caswell, her husband and two young children escaped the crash with minor injuries.

Foss says alcohol does not appear to be a factor, but that speed was.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the crash.

Customers line up for new Goodwill store

BRUNSWICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Some potential Black Friday shoppers got a head start on the crowds and the crunch on Wednesday, as close to a hundred people lined up for the grand opening of a new Goodwill store in Brunswick.

The store, located in the busy Cook's Corner retail area, was packed inside with customers hunting for bargains. As with all Goodwill stores, most of what's sold is donated by individuals or other businesses. The profits from the sales pay for a range of social programs run by Goodwill. The company's President of Retail, Randy Finamore, calls it their "triple bottom line".

"It's about people, about the planet and then to round it our we generate the working capital that supports our programs," said Finamore.

He called the retail stores the engine that drives their social programs.

Man allegedly leads police on chase around Bath

BATH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police arrested a man after he led an officer on a high speed chase Wednesday.

Around 8 p.m. an officer saw a vehicle allegedly driving through the Brackett's Market parking lot at a high speed and in an "erratic" manner, with its tires spinning as it turned onto Commercial Street. The officer pursued the vehicle to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle allegedly accelerated, and then turned onto Lambard Street.

The officer recognized the vehicle and knew the Gray 2005 Cadillac STS belong to Rayon Wilson. About 45 minutes earlier, police said they had dealt with Wilson after he got kicked out of a local bar. Police said they had warned him not to drive because it appeared he was intoxicated at that time.

Chief of Naval Operations to tour Zumwalt

BATH, Maine (AP) - Chief of Naval Operations Admiral William Greenert is slated to tour the first of the Navy's Zumwalt-class destroyers in Bath, Maine.

Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King will accompany Greenert on the tour at Bath Iron Works on Wednesday. The 610-foot warship will be the first electric-drive surface combatant built for the Navy since the 1940s. The Zumwalt's two main generators and two auxiliary units can produce 78 megawatts, enough electricity for about 10,000 homes.

The Zumwalt's pricetag of more than $3.5 billion almost caused the Navy to scuttle the program. Instead it reduced the number of ships from more than 30 to three.
