ARUNDEL, Maine — Maine sheriff’s deputies said a driver died after losing control of his car and crashing into a utility pole and a tree.

They added that the force of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two late Wednesday. It appears that the driver, 29-year-old Bjoun Condappa, of Biddeford, was killed instantly. He was traveling alone.

The crash happened on Route 1 in Arundel, near the Biddeford line. Authorities said speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
