An Exeter man's dead and the driver who struck him, according to sheriff's deputies, said he looked down and took his eyes off the roadway.

Penobscot County Chief Deputy Troy Morton issued a release this morning stating 27 year old Joseph Sweet was struck and killed just after 10:30 yesterday on Route 43 in Corinth.

28 year old Christopher Nichols of Corinth was traveling East when the crash happened.

The Penobscot County District Attorney's Office is reviewing the accident to determine if any charges will be filed.

Deputies say Mr. Sweet was riding a three-wheel bicycle, and his 15 year old brother, who was riding his bicycle ahead of him, was not hurt in the crash.
