WINTERPORT, Maine (AP) - Police say a 21-year-old Bangor, Maine, man has been identified as the person killed in a single-vehicle crash in Winterport.

The crash killed Blaze McQuate, whose car struck a utility pole before becoming airborne and hitting a tree. Police say the crash remains under investigation.

Police say the crash took place just before 9 p.m. Tuesday. They say McQuate was pronounced dead at the scene, and that speed and alcohol were determined to be factors in the crash.

Police say McQuate's car failed to navigate a corner and ran off the road over an embankment before hitting the utility pole.
