Danila Belov, 24, of Brooklyn, New York, was believed to be in the bucket attached to a 2012 Ford Econoline van traveling south on Route 4, also known as Main Street, about 10:48 a.m. when the bucket hit utility wires suspended over the road, according to Shannon Moss, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety. 

Belov worked as a subcontractor for Consolidated Communications.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, Belov died at the scene, Moss said late Tuesday night.

The van was driven by Anton Natachiev, 31, of Brooklyn, New York.

No cause or manner of death were immediately available.

The death remains under investigation.
