Fatal crash

The northern Maine town of Chapman was the scene of a deadly crash. It happened around 6:45 Thursday evening on the Chapman road. State police say 42 year old Johnathan Browning was driving a pickup truck when it drifted off the side of the road causing it to skid out of control. It then crossed back over the roadway and struck a telephone pole before rolling over. Browning was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially thrown from the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police believe excessive speed and the fact Browning wasn't wearing a seatbelt were factors in the deadly crash.
