CORINNA, Maine (AP) - Authorities have identified a Lisbon man who was killed after the all-terrain vehicle he was driving slid down an embankment and rolled over him.

The crash happened Saturday afternoon in Corinna.

Police say 61-year-old Thomas Hughes was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife, 58-year-old Tracy Hughes, was also riding on the ATV. She was taken to Sebasticook Valley Health in Pittsfield and is 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.

Investigators say speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
