Arizona man dies in Maine highway crash

Posted: Updated:

Police say an Arizona man has died in a single-car crash on a rural eastern Maine highway.

Police say 85-year-old Paul Benn from Phoenix was traveling north on Interstate 95 in Medway at about 10:30 a.m. Monday when a witness driving behind him saw his car drift onto the rumble strip.

Benn overcorrected and the car ended up in trees on the side of the road.

Police tell WABI-TV the car was about 60 feet from the road. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

They think Benn either fell asleep at the wheel or may have had a medical issue.

The crash remains under investigation.
