Belmont Woman Dies After Morning Crash Along Route 131
The morning commute turned deadly for a woman from Belmont Monday morning.
Authorities were called to the scene of a single-person crash.
The crash resulted in the death of one resident.
State Police spokesperson, Shannon Moss, says it was just after 8 AM when Maine State Police Troopers responded to the area of Route 131 in Belmont.
"The operator and only occupant of the vehicle, 30-year-old Tambara Arnold of Belmont lost control of her 2001 Toyota 4Runner on an ice-covered portion of the roadway. A witness reported the vehicle losing control, over correcting then leaving the roadway at which point it overturned and struck a tree. Tambara Arnold was pronounced deceased at the scene. "
While road conditions across the state were a bit slick Monday morning, thanks to the weekend snowstorm, Moss says authorities have not yet released the official cause for the accident. State Police are still investigating what led to Arnold losing control of her SUV.
Both Belmont and Belfast Fire Departments assisted the Maine State Police at the scene.
Our thoughts go out to Arnold's friends and family and the community of Belmont at this difficult time.
