    FORT FAIRFIELD — The loss of three generations of one family — killed in a head-on collision on Route 161 on March 9 — has left the community of Fort Fairfield struggling to cope with the tragedy that claimed the lives of Bobbi-Jo Johnston, 33, of Fort Fairfield; Johnston’s mother, Laurie Ann Johnston, 52, of Carlingford, New Brunswick; and Johnston’s 2-year-old daughter, Alana A. Nelson. The three were killed when the sedan they were in was struck by an SUV operated by Kim Lausier, 38, of Madawaska. Lauiser, who was eight months pregnant, also died in the crash. Her husband, Robert Lausier, 53, was seriously injured and is currently being treated at a Bangor hospital.
