A Unity selectwoman died Aug. 17 while driving her car.

Margret Wilcox, 80, was driving on Route 202 near the Field of Dreams at about 10:45 a.m.

Wilcox was elected to the Unity Board of Selectmen in 2006.

The vehicle Wilcox was driving crossed over into the park, went down an embankment, over a walking trail and through a section of tall grass before coming to a stop at the edge of the tree line, said Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office. There were no brake marks and no skid marks, he said.

“It looks like she passed away while driving,” Trundy said.

A man who was mowing the lawn noticed the car and went over and saw that Wilcox was unconscious.

Unity Fire and Ambulance and sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the scene, where she was pronounced dead.
