CARIBOU, Maine — A Woodland man is dead after a single-vehicle accident Thursday evening in Caribou, according to information released late Friday morning by Police Chief Michael Gahagan.

Myles Campbell, 29, was alone in a 2006 Kia Sorento traveling east shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday when he failed to negotiate a left turn on York Road.

Officers received a report of an accident on that road at 6:03 p.m. and upon arrival at the scene discovered Campbell partially ejected from the car, Gahagan said in the release.

It appeared the driver lost control of the vehicle, which struck an embankment and landed on its side. Campbell, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was not wearing a seat belt.

Speed may have contributed to the accident, which is under investigation by Caribou police Officer Keith Ouellette, who received assistance at the scene from members of the Maine State Police, the Maine Warden Service and Caribou Fire and Ambulance.
