NEW PORTLAND-A student from Mt. Abram High School has died following a crash in New Portland.
The Somerset County Sheriff’s office says 17 year old Daniel Emery was traveling on Route 16 when his Honda left the roadway.
It ended up going into a ditch and striking two trees before rolling over.
Emery was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected during the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was alone at the time of the crash.
Investigators say they learned Emery had just passed another vehicle before the crash and they believe excessive speed contributed to his loss of control.
