(NEWS CENTER) - The Bureau of Highway Safety says 34 people have been killed on Maine roads so far this year, eight of them teenagers.
That compares with 25 deaths at this time a year ago.
The most recent deadly crash killed a 20 year old Saint Joseph's College student
who was a passenger in a speeding car that went out of control in Standish last weekend.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating the crash, said the three other students in the car escaped serious injury because they were wearing seat belts.
The victim was not and was partially ejected from the car.
