A man was found dead Saturday after a single-vehicle crash in Carmel, according to the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

The identity of the 50-year-old man had not been released as of Sunday night.

On Saturday just after 10 a.m., the Penobscot County Regional Communications Center received a report of a single-vehicle crash around the area of 741 Fuller Road. The first report was that there was one occupant in the vehicle, and he was unresponsive.

When Penobscot County deputies arrived at the scene, it was determined that the man was dead, according to a sheriff’s office Facebook post. The vehicle was traveling on Fuller Road between Irish Road and Homestead Lane when he apparently veered off the road and crashed the car into trees.

The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigation Division and Accident Reconstruction Team concluded that speed may have been a factor in the wreck, which remains under investigation.

In addition to the sheriff’s office, the Carmel and Hermon fire departments and the Penobscot County mental health liaison responded.
