Mass. boy killed by out-of-control car in Maine


The driver of an out-of-control car that struck a family of four and killed a 9-year-old boy on a wharf in a small coastal Maine town said she did not know how the accident happened, police said. Cheryl Torgerson, 61, of New York City was driving in St. George at about 3 p.m. Sunday when she hit another vehicle, knocked a pedestrian into a building, and hit six more vehicles before striking a family of four from Massachusetts who were walking on the wharf, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Department. The boy was killed, and two other family members were flown to a Portland hospital. Police have not released the names of the family.
