Fatal ATV Crash in Woodville

A Woodville man is dead following an ATV crash.

Maine game wardens responded to the scene of the crash this morning around 9:00 a.m.

Wardens say that 47 year old John Boucher died at the scene.

Boucher was last seen Sunday night. He was operating his ATV and failed to negotiate a 90-degree turn at the bottom of a hill.

The ATV came to rest on Boucher after striking a large rock.

Boucher was not wearing a helmet and game wardens say speed appears to be a contributing factor in this crash.

Assisting game wardens at the scene were Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office and East Millinocket Fire and Rescue.

The incident is still under investigation.
