A Massachusetts man was killed Monday afternoon after the rental car he was driving north on Interstate 95 crashed in Old Town, going into the median and hitting a tree.

The man was driving a rented 2019 Nissan Sentra, which left the road around 4 p.m., according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. The driver instantly died.

“Speed is the likely cause of the crash,” McCausland said.

Police did not immediately identify the man, who was the only person in the car.
