READFIELD — A Farmington man was killed Saturday night after his motorcycle apparently left the road and crashed on Old Kents Hill Road.

Richard L. Goucher, 63, was found near some rocks and a ditch off the side of the road, according to officials.

A motorist called 911 at about 9 p.m. Saturday to report a motorcycle with its lights on in the ditch near 234 Old Kents Hill Road. The caller located Goucher a short distance from the motorcycle, unconscious and not breathing, according to the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies and Winthrop Ambulance personnel responded and located Goucher, who had died.

Police said their preliminary investigation indicated Goucher, who was not wearing a helmet, failed to negotiate a corner and his motorcycle veered off the road.

There was no indication alcohol or speed was a factor in the crash, according to officials.
