WATERFORD — Police said Thursday that speed and alcohol were factors behind a single-vehicle crash that left one woman dead near the Papoose Pond Campground on Hunts Corner Road on Wednesday evening. 

Her identity had not been released because next of kin were being notified.

Oxford County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Hart Daley said police from multiple agencies arrived at the scene around 9:30 p.m. and discovered the driver of the vehicle deceased. 

A search of the area by multiple fire and rescue personnel using thermal imaging devices found no other people involved, Daley said. 

A crash reconstruction found that speed and alcohol were involved.
