BREAKING NEWS: Rollover By Humble Farmer Shuts Down Rt. 131

Saturday Morning Update: Last night at approximately 7:45 p.m. Knox County Regional Communications Center (KCRCC) received a call of a single vehicle rollover on Rt. 131, just south of the intersection of Rt. 73.  KCRCC coordinated the appropriate units to respond.  It was additionally reported that the single occupant was trapped in the vehicle.  

Knox County Sheriff's Deputy Arthur Smith investigated.  Deputy Smith found that Raymond Montgomery was travelling north on Rt. 131 (River Rd.) in St. George when for an unknown reason he veered off the right side of the road he was travelling.  Montgomery struck a utility pole and then head-on into an embankment.  The 2006 Cadillac SUV he was operating rolled up on its front end completely over and came down on its roof.  Montgomery was seriously injured in the crash with lacerations and potential broken bones.  He was transported to Pen-Bay Medical Center and later by Life-Flight of Maine to a hospital in Portland.  It is believed that alcohol is a factor in the crash.
