Lincolnville — Slick roads were the cause of a single-vehicle crash in Lincolnville Feb. 8, around 2:30 p.m., according to an email from Lincolnville Police Chief Ron Young.

A 2005 GMC 2500 pickup operated by Brandon Jimenez-Roberts, 20, of Skowhegan spun out of control on slippery roads as a stormy weekend got under way. Roberts was traveling south on Route 1 near Viking Lumber in Lincolnville when he lost control of his vehicle striking — and breaking — a utility pole, which landed across the bed of his truck.

Young said there was no power to the utility pole at the time of the crash.

Roberts was the only occupant in the vehicle and he was not injured in the crash, Young said. Traffic was impeded for a period of time while the scene was cleared.

Lincolnville Fire Department, Camden First Aid Association and Lincolnville Police Department responded to the crash.

Young added that Lincolnville Fire Department did an excellent job safely diverting traffic around the scene of the incident during the inclement weather.

A couple of weeks ago there was a car off the road in almost the same exact spot. Perhaps DOT needs to take a look at the road there?
