ISLAND FALLS, MAINE — Police believe that alcohol was a factor in a midmorning crash on Sunday in Island Falls.

Maine State Police Sgt. Josh Haines said in a statement released Thursday that the crash took place on South Shore Road at approximately 10:30 a.m.

According to Haines, Terrance Robinson, 58, was driving his 1994 Jeep Cherokee when he failed to negotiate a corner and left the roadway, which was covered with dirt. He then struck a tree.

Robinson was wearing his seat belt and his air bag deployed. He was taken to Houlton Regional Hospital by the Island Falls Ambulance Service with apparent internal injuries.

The truck was totaled in the crash and as a result was towed from the scene by Hayes Wrecker Service. The crash appears to be alcohol related and remains under investigation, Haines said. The crash was investigated by Trooper Tim Saucier, who was assisted by Trooper Jared Sylvia.
