NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine — A Skowhegan man was killed late Sunday afternoon in a single-vehicle accident in Norridgewock, according to police.

Frederick Winchester, 50, was killed instantly when he failed to stop at the intersection of Ward Hill Road and Route 201A and struck an embankment, Chief Deputy James Ross of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office said.

Winchester, the lone occupant, was traveling south on the Ward Hill Road at the time of the accident, according to Ross. The impact of the collision caused the vehicle to go end-for-end twice.

Winchester, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, Ross said. Speed and alcohol are being investigated as possible factors.
