BIDDEFORD, Maine — Police say a Rhode Island man was charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving following a crash that claimed the life of his passenger in Biddeford, Maine.

Deputy Chief JoAnne Fisk says 20-year-old Anthony Ciccone of Pepperell, Mass., was killed when a Ford Explorer crashed into a utility pole early Sunday.

She says the driver, 20-year-old Christopher Bennett of Johnston, R.I., was booked in the York County Jail on $300,000 bail after getting medical treatment. There was no paperwork indicating he had a lawyer.

Police say the episode unfolded when two men suspected of being intoxicated tried to force their way into a dorm room at the University of New England before driving away. Police say the men were visiting friends at UNE.
