The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said a 56-year-old man was killed Thursday night when his SUV left White’s Bridge Road in Standish and hit multiple trees.

Clifford Colter, 56, of Standish was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox when it failed to negotiate a curve and left the road in the vicinity of 480 White’s Bridge Road. The vehicle struck several trees, and Colter was trapped inside for over an hour. Rescue crews used the Jaws of Life to extricate him from the wreckage, Capt. Kerry Joyce said.

Medical conditions, speed and weather are all being investigated as factors in the crash, Joyce said. The crash was reported at 8:25 p.m.
