An Albion woman was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Wells Friday morning that shut the southbound side of the highway down for hours.

According to Maine State Police, the crash happened at 8:41 a.m. on the southbound side near mile marker 20.

Oguzhan Cildir, 23, of Brighton, Massachusetts, was driving a black Toyota Prius when police said he struck a silver Toyota Sienna minivan and a white Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.

The truck, police said, “rolled over several times.” The truck’s driver, Gloria Cascio, 53, of Albion, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The truck’s passenger, Vincent Cascio, 60, of Albion, was flown by helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland with what police said were serious injuries.

The minivan’s driver, Troy Perrault, 51, of Old Orchard Beach, received minor injuries.  

A fourth vehicle, a gray Chevrolet Impala, was also involved in the crash, but police said the driver was not hurt.

Exactly how long the accident investigation closed the highway is unclear, but at 9:30 a.m. Friday traffic in all three lanes of the southbound side of the highway was at a standstill.  

First responders were tending to a white pickup truck on its roof and at least two vehicles that appeared to be badly damaged. 

Vehicles driving southbound on Interstate 95 at 1:30 p.m. still saw digital signs advising the highway remained closed at mile marker 20 and advised drivers to seek alternate routes.

According to a news release sent from police at 3:30 p.m., all three southbound lanes had been reopened.
