A Lowell man was killed and a passenger injured Wednesday in a crash in Hancock County’s Township 34.

Gary Haskell, 53, of Lowell was on Morrison Ridge Road in his GMC Sierra pickup truck when it went off the road, hit several trees and rolled onto its roof. He died at the scene, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Pamela Ireland, 47, of Lowell was transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center of Bangor for non-life-threatening injuries, McCausland said.

Neither were wearing seat belts, and Haskell might have been driving too fast for conditions, McCausland said.

Maine State Police and forest rangers are investigating the crash, McCausland said.
