WATERVILLE — Police say alcohol and excessive speed are believed to be factors in an early morning crash that killed a 24-year-old Oakland man.

Police said Estanislao Garcia was killed after crashing his new sports car into two utility poles on a Waterville street shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday. A passenger was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor with injuries.

Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey told the Morning Sentinel that Garcia had just bought the car a few days earlier.

He said police estimate the car was traveling at more than 80 mph when it went airborne, careened out of control and hit the poles.
