Lincoln man summoned after Howland rollover

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

HOWLAND, Maine — A Lincoln man was summoned for driving without a license and drunken driving Sunday night after rolling his car over on LaGrange Road.

After the crash, Harold Curtis Jr. was taken to Penobscot Valley Hospital in Lincoln where he received treatment for neck and back pain, Deputy Michael Knights of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department said Monday.

According to Knights, the crash occurred about 10:15 p.m. while Curtis was traveling on LaGrange Road. Curtis apparently lost control of his 2002 Nissan Altima, which left the roadway and rolled at least three times before coming to a rest on its roof.

When Knights and several state police troopers arrived, they found Curtis standing in the roadway and his car nearby, upside down.

Knights said Monday that Curtis, who was not wearing a seat belt, was injured when he was ejected from his car.

Knights attributed the crash to the combination of poor road conditions, speed and alcohol.

He said state police Sgt. Thomas Fiske and Troopers Jarod Stedman and Forrest Simpson assisted in the investigation and that Curtis’ vehicle was demolished, Knights said.
