BAILEYVILLE, Maine — One man from Princeton was killed and two other people were injured early Saturday in a single-vehicle accident on South Princeton Road.

Baileyville Officer Justin Leighton said Saturday evening that the accident remains under investigation, and police are still determining who was driving the 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier that went off the right side of the road and crashed into trees.

Leighton said when he arrived at the scene just before 4 a.m. Saturday, Andrew Dow, 24, of Princeton was dead inside the vehicle.

Outside the vehicle and injured were Daniel Dwelley, 23, of Princeton and Michelle Takach, 27, home address unknown.

Dwelley was taken to Calais Regional Hospital, treated for injuries and later released, Leighton said. Takach also was taken to CRH with unknown injuries that were not life-threatening, the officer said.

Leighton said it is still unclear who was driving, whether the two injured people were ejected or whether anyone was wearing a seat belt.

He could not say whether speed or alcohol were involved and said it was unknown where the people were coming from or driving to.

Leighton said more information may be released in a few days.

Leighton was assisted at the scene by U.S. Border Patrol, Calais police, Maine State Police, Baileyville Fire Department and Calais Rescue.
