WINTERPORT — The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a serious crash that left one person dead in Winterport Thursday evening.
A sergeant with the sheriff’s office said a call came in around 7 p.m. for a crash involving a truck on Stream Road, also known as Route 139.
A statement from the sheriff’s office said 21-year-old Jesse Skillings of Frankfort was the only person in the vehicle, which hit a mailbox, crossed the road and came to rest against a tree.
Skillings was pronounced dead at the scene.
The investigation is ongoing, but Chief Deputy Jason Trundy said the initial indications are speed and alcohol may be factors in the accident.
A portion of Stream Road, from the Loggin Road intersection to the Goshen Road intersection, was shut down for a little over two hours.
The sheriff’s office, Winterport fire and ambulance, and West Frankfort firefighters all responded.
