A Wells man was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Post Road in Wells early Saturday morning.

Scott L. Moulton, 58, was pronounced dead at the scene, Wells police said.

Police said they were called to the accident, just north of the Wells post office, at 1:17 a.m. and found a silver Dodge pickup truck upside down in a brook.

Police said the truck had been heading north on Post Road when it crossed the centerline and went off the road.

Moulton, the sole occupant of the vehicle, was found by rescue workers.

It took several hours to remove the truck from the brook, police said.

Sanford police were helping to investigate the cause of the accident.
