SACO — Investigators are looking into what may have caused a two-vehicle crash on New County Road — Route 5 —  in Saco late Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 30, that claimed the life of a 33-year-old Saco man.

Brandon Sheehan was found deceased at the scene, Saco Police said in a statement.

Saco Police were called to the area of 178 New County Road for reports of a vehicle crash just before 4:40 p.m. on Aug. 30.

“Officers upon arrival found a white Ford F-250 pickup truck off the roadway on the lawn of a residence and a black Toyota Camry partially still in the roadway, both having been involved in the crash,” Deputy Police Chief Corey Huntress said in a statement issued the evening of Aug. 30.

He said the investigation showed the 2008 Ford F-250, operated by Cole Mariner, 48, of Saco, was heading eastbound on New County Road and Sheehan was heading west in a 2022 black Toyota Camry.

“(The) initial investigation shows the Toyota Camry crossed the center line and struck the Ford pickup truck head-on in the crash,” said Huntress.

Mariner sustained minor injuries, police said.

The crash remains under investigation. Members of the Saco Police Department’s specialized team reconstructed the crash.
