According to WGME, a Maine teen is dead following a Sunday evening crash in Edgecomb.

The crash happened at about 10:20 PM on Sunday night.  According to police, a VW Beetle driven by 17 year old Paris Pierpont was driving northbound when the vehicle crossed over into the southbound lane and went off the road. After leaving the road, the car then hit a utility pole and tree.

Pierpont passed away at the scene.  It does appear that speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts go out to her family.
