PITTSTON, Maine — A 67-year-old Woolwich man died Friday evening after his Jeep Cherokee slid off Route 27 and rolled over into a pond.

Edward MacDonald was headed home from his job at the Maine Municipal Association in Augusta when his 2003 Jeep Cherokee slid off Route 27, also known as Wiscasset Road, which was slick from snow, Maine State Police Trooper Kyle Peckham said Saturday.

MacDonald’s Jeep traveled into a ditch and rolled over into a small pond, breaking through the surface ice and becoming largely submerged in the water, according to Peckham.

MacDonald, the only occupant of the vehicle, was wearing his seat belt, and was deceased in the vehicle when Gardiner and Pittston rescue personnel arrived, Peckham said.
