A Brunswick man was killed while retrieving his mail Monday when he was hit by a car in front of his Gurnet Road home.

Ronald A. Pottle, 66, of 234 Gurnet Road was hit at 6:14 p.m. as he was crossing the road back to his house from his mailbox, police said.

Pottle was hit by a car driven by Douglas Self, 55, of Brunswick who was driving a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix south on Gurnet Road, which is also Route 24.

Brunswick rescue took Pottle to Maine Medical Center in Portland but he succumbed to his injuries.

Brunswick police are investigating the crash.

“All indications are there will be no charges,” said Cmdr. Mark Hagan. He said officers conducted a blood test as is mandatory in cases where somebody is seriously injured in a crash. The results are not back but there is no evidence the driver was drinking, he said.

Rain impeded the driver’s visibility and there was oncoming traffic, which also may have contributed to the crash, he said. There are no street lights on Route 24 and the speed limit is 50 mph, he said.
