SACO — A 30-year-old Old Orchard Beach man was killed when the utility truck he was driving crashed into trees then rolled onto its side on Jenkins Road.
Bradford Ferguson was driving south on Jenkins Road headed toward Route 112 at 9:30 a.m. when the crash occurred near Winding Brook Lane, police said. Witnesses told police that Ferguson had passed two cars in a 40 mph no passing zone just before the crash.
A statement issued by Deputy Chief Jeffrey Holland said that excessive speed and improper passing appear to have contributed to the crash.
Firefighters had to use an extrication tool to get Ferguson out of the demolished vehicle.
The road was shut down for about four hours while the Saco Police Department's accident reconstruction team investigated the crash.
