DURHAM, Maine— Maine State Police say a Lewiston man died when his car rolled over multiple times in Durham.

Barry Morrison, 53, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash late Friday afternoon, Trooper Nathan Jamo told the Sun Journal of Lewiston.

Police say speed was “an overwhelming factor” and alcohol is suspected because there was an open can of beer in the 2004 Mitsubishi Galant.

Morrison was headed east on Soper Road when he lost control of the car and it rolled at least five or six times. An investigation is continuing.
