PHIPPSBURG — A Phippsburg man was killed in an ATV accident just before 1 a.m. Monday on Sebasco Road, police said.

Justin S. Thomas, 20, was traveling east around a bend in the road when the vehicle struck a utility pole, Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry said in a news release.

Speed and wet road conditions were factors in the accident, Merry said. "There was a steady rain at the time of the crash," he said.

Thomas had a helmet with him, but it's unclear whether he was wearing it, Merry said.
