AUGUSTA — William Stevenson, 53, of Stockton Springs died in a Maine Turnpike crash Sept. 24 when his 2014 BMW sedan was rear-ended and then pinned between two other vehicles.

His fiancee, Tina Adams, 54, of Stockton Springs, a passenger in the car, was injured in the crash. The initial accident report listed the couple as residing in Stonington. Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Shannon Moss on Thursday, Oct. 13, corrected the earlier report after speaking with Adams.

The crash was one of two related incidents involving multiple vehicles on the northbound side of the Turnpike between 11 a.m. and noon on the 24th. In the first crash, at 11:11 a.m. near Mile Marker 107, the drivers involved were 23-year-old Rahjine Waller of Roslindale, Massachusetts, driving a 2022 maroon Kia SUV, and 35-year-old Timothy Callaghan of St. John, New Brunswick, driving a 2016 black Mazda SUV.

The initial investigation showed Waller was traveling in the passing lane when she moved to the right lane and then rear-ended Callaghan, who also moved into the right lane, police said. The investigation shows both drivers were traveling at a high rate of speed, police said. Both drivers suffered only minor injuries.

The fatal crash occurred about 40 minutes later near Mile Marker 104 in West Gardiner. The initial investigation showed it was a secondary crash caused by traffic slowing in the area. Stevenson was pronounced dead at the scene; Adams was taken to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Police said Stevenson’s sedan was struck in the rear by either a 2016 Chevy Malibu or a 2021 Jeep Wrangler. The Chevy Malibu was driven by 57-year-old Jeffrey Royster of West Gardiner and the Jeep was driven by 51-year-old Laura Stanley of Wells. Stanley was also taken to the hospital.

Moss said Oct. 13 that the report reconstructing the two crashes is still being finalized. Once it is complete, it will be sent to the District Attorney’s Office to determine whether any charges will be filed.
