MEDFORD, Maine — A LaGrange man was killed Sunday night in an all-terrain vehicle crash on Paddy Hill Road.

Daniel Turner, 46, was heading toward Route 16 on his three-wheeled ATV with three other riders, including an adult son, when he hit a bump while coming down a hill shortly before 10 p.m., according to James Kane, an investigator with the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department.

Turner then lost control of his trike, which flipped several times, throwing Turner into the roadway, Kane said.

Kane said that Turner, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the accident scene by emergency medical personnel.
