TOWNSHIP 2, RANGE 9, Maine (AP) — State police say speed and weather likely contributed to a fatal crash on Interstate 95 south in rural Maine.

Police say 55-year-old Norman Ayotte of Biddeford was driving too fast for the snowy conditions when he lost control of his SUV and crashed in the median at mile marker 233 at about 9 a.m. Sunday.

Ayotte was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from his vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passenger, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Ayotte was towing an all-terrain vehicle on a trailer.

State Police responded to the scene along with rescue crews from Lincoln and East Millinocket.
