FRENCHVILLE, Maine — A Frenchville man has been summoned in connection with a single-vehicle accident early Thursday morning, according to information released late Thursday afternoon by Aroostook County Chief Deputy Sheriff Darrell Crandall.

Kendall A. Voisine, 19, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, operating after suspension and possession of alcohol by a minor following the 1:45 a.m. single-vehicle accident.

According to Crandall, his officers responded to a report of a vehicle rollover on Route 1 in Frenchville, about one-quarter mile from the Fort Kent town line.

Deputies found a 2005 Dodge pickup partially in the road and lying on its side.

A search for the driver led them to Voisine’s residence, where it was determined that he had lost control of the truck after crossing a set of railroad tracks. The rear of the truck slid into a snowbank and the vehicle rolled onto its side, Crandall reported.

Voisine was taken by sheriff’s deputies back to the scene, where the summonses were issued. He will make his initial court appearance on March 3 in Fort Kent District Court.

Voisine was not injured and the truck had minor damage, according to Crandall. The accident remains under investigation.
