Gorham Man Dies from ATV Incident
Augusta, Maine - A 79-year-old Gorham man died Tuesday night a short period of time after he was involved in an ATV incident in Standish.
Roland J. Levesque, 79, of Gorham was driving an ATV at a slow rate of speed down a rocky hill between Boundary and Middle roads in Standish after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30. He was in an area called Nature’s Way, and on a trail that in the winter is used by snowmobilers. The part of the trail where the incident occurred has experienced erosion because of all of the recent rains.
Mr. Levesque was traveling with a friend, Andrew Wheeler of Gorham, who assisted Mr. Levesque at the scene and who called rescue personnel at approximately 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Mr. Levesque was conscious when he was transported to Maine Medical Center, but died a short time later.
The incident is under investigation by the Maine Warden Service.
