BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - One man has died following a crash in Bangor Saturday morning.

38-year-old James Rice of Bangor was killed in the crash.

Police were called to the I-95 northbound off-ramp near Exit 186 (near Stillwater) just before 9:30 a.m.

Maine State Police say that Rice never made the turn for the exit before driving into the woods, down an embankment, before striking a tree.

Fire officials say some witnesses made life saving efforts.

“There was a passerby who was a former EMT. He and some other bystanders attempted first aid, but there’s very little they could do due to the entrapment of the individual.”

Asst. Chief Greg Hodge, Bangor Fire Dept.

Officials add that Rice was wearing a seatbelt and that there were no other occupants in the car.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
