PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Police in Presque Isle said Monday that speed was a factor in a late night crash Sunday that seriously injured a 48-year-old Fort Fairfield man.

According to information from the Presque Isle Police Department, the single-vehicle crash took place on Maysville Street just before a passerby called 911 at 11:14 p.m.

Police said Kurt Parks, 48, was westbound on the roadway when he lost control of his 1992 Chevy Camaro as he approached a curve.

He then veered into the oncoming lane and struck a guardrail. He was not wearing a seat belt and suffered serious injuries.

Parks was alone in the vehicle and was taken by Crown Ambulance to The Aroostook Medical Center.

Presque Isle Police Department Officers Cole Chandler and Peter Johnson arrived at the scene and received assistance from Officers Larry Fickett and Kevin Reed. The Presque Isle Fire Department also assisted at the scene.

Information on Parks’ condition was not immediately available Monday.
