A 38-year-old Bristol man died in a rollover on Biscay Road in Damariscotta the evening of Friday, Aug. 21.
Brett M. Decker was driving a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 truck south in the vicinity of 83 Biscay Road, near Billings & Cole Marine, around 9:20 p.m., according to Damariscotta Police Chief Jason Warlick.
“It appears the operator of the motor vehicle was doing a burnout and spinning his tires at a slow speed when he lost control of the vehicle and went into the ditch,” Warlick said. “To the best of our knowledge, at this point in the investigation, neither alcohol nor drugs played a role in the crash.”
The vehicle rolled onto its roof and came to rest. Decker, the only occupant of the vehicle, was not wearing a seat belt and the truck’s air bags did not deploy, Warlick said. Decker died at the scene.
The truck was totaled and was removed by Quick Turn Auto Repair & Towing, Warlick said.
A portion of Biscay Road was closed while the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office completed an accident reconstruction, Warlick said. The Damariscotta Fire Department and Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office provided traffic control. The road reopened around 11 p.m. Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service also responded.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the Damariscotta Police Department at 563-1909.
