ALFRED — A Sanford man apparently died sometime Friday while working under a vehicle in the driveway of a garage on Old Falls Pond Road, state police said Friday night.
Basil Johnson, 50, of Aspen Lane, Sanford, was found dead around 7 p.m. by rescue workers who were called to the scene. He appeared to have been dead for a while, said Ben Harris, an emergency medical technician who responded to the call.
Johnson's death appears to have been medical related because there were no apparent injuries or trauma, said Maine State Trooper Jeremy Forbes.
Forbes said the state medical examiner is delaying an autopsy until police are able to contact Johnson's doctor to get medical records.
The cause of the man's death was unclear but doesn't appear to be suspicious, Forbes said
