CORINNA, Maine (AP) - A Lisbon man has died after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving slid down an embankment and rolled over him.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1iUAiv3 ) the crash happened Saturday afternoon in Corinna.

Police say the 61-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was also riding on the ATV and was taken to a hospital. She’s expected to recover from her injuries.

Police say there was no shoulder where the couple was riding and the ATV apparently slid down a hill toward a boggy area.

Both the man and the woman were wearing helmets.

Authorities didn’t immediately identify the victims.
