21-year-old Cornville man killed after crashing car into telephone pole


CORNVILLE, Maine — A 21-year-old man was killed Friday night in a single-vehicle crash on West Ridge Road.

Joseph T. Faucher-Kuhlman, of Cornville, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a statement from the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office. There were no passengers, the Kennebec Journal reports.

Faucher-Kuhlman was driving north on West Ridge Road in a black 2010 Chevrolet truck, Det. Lt. Carl Gottardi wrote in the release.

At approximately 11:10 p.m., the truck struck a telephone pole and a utility trailer that was parked in a driveway.

The truck flipped over and landed on its roof. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected and “subsequently pinned underneath the truck,” according to Gottardi.

The accident is still under investigation.
