What happened to Dylan Chretien & Nicholas Centofanti?
On Wednesday, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is looking into the scene of a fatal collision. Following an automobile accident in Casco, Maine, Dylan Chretien, 19, of Bridgton, passed away.
A second man, identified as 20-year-old Nick Centofanti, was taken to Maine Medical Centre in severe condition, according to law authorities.

It breaks my heart to inform you all that my son Nick Centofanti is brain-dead. My heart is saddened as we say goodbye, but I appreciate your support.
