75-Year-Old Man is Dead After a Hollis Single-Vehicle Crash
A 75-year-old man is dead following a single-vehicle crash in Hollis.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says State Police responded to the crash on Saco Road just after 1:00 Friday afternoon. Officials say they found a 2007 Toyota Yaris, driven by Robert Smith of Hollis, that was off the road. First responders from Hollis Fire and Rescue attempted to stabilize Smith, but he did not survive.
An investigation into the circumstances of the crash determined that Smith was traveling eastbound with his brother, who was a passenger in the car, when he lost control and crashed onto a property in the area of the 300 block on Saco Road. Smith's brother gained control of the steering wheel and prevented the car from crashing into the residence.
Officials say it appears Smith suffered a medical event prior to the crash. Maine State Police have extended their condolences to Smith's family and friends.
