GLENBURN - A man died at the scene of a head-on car crash on Route 15 in Glenburn Saturday.


The crash happened just before noon near Pineview Avenue.


Penobscot County Sheriff Troy Morton said one person died at the scene.


Three other people were taken to the hospital. A press release sent later from the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office said those three people have minor injuries.


Sheriff Morton said one vehicle was traveling north and the other south, when one of the cars veered over the center line striking the other vehicle head on.


Officials are investigating  why the driver crossed into the other lane.


"This is very early into the investigation. There were some witnesses in the area, so that will certainly be part of the investigation," said Sheriff Morton.


A reconstruction and mapping team were also brought to the scene to investigate further.


Part of the road was shut down for hours while authorities responded.


No names have been released at this time.
