A Newburgh man was killed early Wednesday morning after he lost control of his truck on black ice on Interstate 95 in Hampden.
The crash happened in the northbound lanes of the interstate around 5: 30 a.m. After losing control on black ice, the pickup driven by 57- year-old Stanley Swallow struck a guardrail and overturned numerous times, according to Maine State Authorities.
Swallow was not wearing a safety belt and was thrown from the truck, police stated. He died at the scene.
State cops say Swallow was the 31 st individual to die on Maine roadways this year, the same number as last year at this time.
