Rebecca L. Brown, 26, died at the scene, according to a statement from the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.

The car was registered to Andrew J. Smith, 25, of Lisbon.

Smith and a woman in the car, who authorities have not identified, were taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, authorities said.

Police have not identified who was driving.

Early reports indicate the 2003 Toyota Corolla was traveling toward Lisbon on Shiloh Road when the car went of the right side of the road at about 1 a.m. and hit a utility pole, breaking it in half. The car continued on and struck a large rock, before stopping in a field at Shiloh and Deervale roads, according to the Sheriff’s Office.


The vehicle was impounded and further examination of the passenger compartment will be conducted after a search warrant is obtained this week, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The roads were closed during the crash scene investigation and utility pole repair.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Lisbon and Brunswick Police Departments, Durham Fire-Rescue, Lisbon Emergency and Brunswick Fire-Rescue.

Anyone with information about the crash should call Deputy Darian Nadeau at 207-753-2599.
