Police say “excessive speed” is the likely cause of the accident that resulted in the death of a Belmont man in a single vehicle accident in Windsor just after noon Sunday, May 13 .

Maine State Police Sgt. Michael Field said Timothy Simmons, 44, of Belmont was the lone occupant in the 2003 Ford Taurus he was driving at the time of the crash, which Field said occurred as Simmons was traveling south on Route 32 in Windsor.

Field said Simmons veered off the road and into the ditch. The vehicle then rolled over and struck a utility pole.

“It looks like probably excessive speed is going to be the primary cause,” said Field.

Field said Simmons died at the scene as the result of injuries he sustained. Field said Simmons was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.

“It happened quick,” said the officer. “It is very unfortunate, especially with it being Mother’s Day.”
