Rhode Island man severely injured in Maine ATV crash has died
MT. VERNON (WGME) -- The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office says a man who was severely injured in an ATV crash last week has died.
The crash happened on July 4 at 1:30 p.m. on Pond Road in Mt. Vernon.
Deputies say 38-year-old Ryan Lacroix of Cumberland, Rhode Island, was thrown off an ATV and found unresponsive in the roadway by a passerby.
He was severely injured and flown to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. He succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.
Deputies say it appears speed, alcohol, and driver in-experience may have been factors in the crash.
