A 47-year-old Sanford man was killed Monday morning when the car he was driving went off a road in North Berwick and hit a tree.

Kevin Manion was driving a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee on Ford Quint Road just after 7:30 a.m., said Police Chief Stephen Peasley.

Manion’s car drifted across the residential road and slid as he tried to correct. The driver’s side of the car then hit a tree, Peasley said. Manion, the only occupant, was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene, Peasley said.

Police are trying to determine what may have contributed to Manion going off the road. They do not believe speed was a factor in the crash. Authorities collected blood samples to test for drugs or alcohol, as is required in any crash with serious injuries. Peasley said Manion’s cellphone was found in his pocket, so they believe he was not distracted by the phone at the time.

Manion had just driven out of a slight curve, but the area where the crash occurred was straight road, the chief said.

Manion was indicted in 2012 on charges of driving to endanger and two counts of reckless conduct.
