MILFORD, Maine — A Milford man is lucky to be alive after his car split in two pieces on the County Road on Sunday night, police said.

Samuel Ketch, 27, had been released from Eastern Maine Medical Center by Monday afternoon, according to Deputy Roy Peary of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

Ketch, who was alone in his Mitsubishi 3,000 GT sports car, was heading toward Stud Mill Road when the accident occurred around 6:30 p.m., according to Peary.

The deputy said Ketch likely approached a corner near the construction of a new bridge too fast, and skidded into a concrete barrier.

The impact split the nose of the car completely free from the rest of the vehicle, sending the engine compartment and the nose of the car into the Sunkhaze Stream.

The remainder of the vehicle came to rest about three-quarters of the way across the bridge, Peary said.

Ketch, who was wearing his seat belt, was not seriously injured. He was treated at EMMC and released.
