HANOVER - A man from Roxbury was killed Wednesday afternoon while riding a motorcycle in western Maine.

Officials say Daniel Gautreau, 59, was traveling on Route 2 in the town of Hanover when he apparently did not see a vehicle that had stopped to make a left turn in front of him.

 

Gautreau swerved into the opposite travel lane to avoid hitting the car and ended up in the path of car driven by a woman from Pennsylvania.

 

The car and the motorcycle collided head on and Gautreau was killed.

 

No one else was injured in the crash.
