WILTON — A Dixfield man died Saturday night after the truck he was inside veered off Route 4 and rolled over, police said.

The man, Jeffrey Burgess, 25, was pronounced dead after being rushed to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington.

Another occupant of the truck, Adam Turner, 27, was seriously injured and taken to Franklin Memorial, where a hospital spokeswoman said this morning that Turner had been transferred to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. No information on Turner was available this morning at the Lewiston hospital.

The car accident was reported at 8:40 p.m. near the intersection of Routes 2 and 4 and Wilton police and fire crews responded to the scene, according to a release from Wilton police.

Police said a Ford F-250 truck, traveling east on Route 4, had veered off the road and rolled over an embankment, crashing into several trees. Inside the truck were Burgess, Turner and 25-year-old Zachary Metivier.

Wilton police officers investigating the incident couldn’t be reached Sunday, so it was unknown who was the driving the truck and where Turner and Metivier are residents.

Police said the accident probably occurred when the Ford truck passed a red sedan and that was also driving east on Route 4.

Wilton police said they were assisted at the scene by officers from Jay, Dixfield, Farmington, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and Maine State Police. Wilton officer Nick Oettinger is leading the investigation into the accident.

Police asked that anyone with information on the accident — especially anyone who was in the red sedan that the truck passed — to call the Wilton Police Department at 645-4222.
