2 Men Die Monday Night in Single-Vehicle Crash in Carmel
Two men have died as the result of a single-vehicle crash on Route 69 in Carmel.
The Penobscot County Sheriff's Office reports Deputies were dispatched to the scene of the crash at approximately 9:19 p.m. Monday. When they arrived in the 800 block of Route 69, they found a lone sedan and two males who were deceased. Officials have identified the driver as 23-year-old Steven Shelley of Hermon, and his passenger as 17-year-old Kadin Brown of Newburgh.
An initial investigation into the circumstances of the crash suggests the vehicle was traveling southeast at a very high rate of speed. Shelley appears to have lost control of the vehicle, causing the sedan to cross the center line before leaving the roadway and striking several trees.
The sheriff's office reconstruction, forensic mapping, deputies, and detectives continue to investigate this crash.
