UPDATE: Paris woman charged with manslaughter in connection with crash

PARIS — A Buckfield man died Saturday when the vehicle he was riding in crashed and rolled over.

Paris police said passenger Kevin Wassell, 41, was killed in a single-vehicle crash.

The 32-year-old driver, who was not identified, lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a turn on Paris Hill Road. Speed may have been a factor, police said.

She and another passenger were taken to local hospitals. None of the riders were wearing seat belts, police said.

The vehicle rolled over onto its roof, trapping the three inside. The crash happened at 3 p.m.

The crash is being investigated by the Paris Police Department with help from the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office and Maine State Police.

Paris Hill Road was closed between Old Route 6 and Phillips Road for several hours. It was reopened Saturday night.
