PITTSTON, Maine (AP) - Maine state police say a man apparently drowned after his car went off the road in Pittston, rolled and crashed through the ice of a pond roof first Friday night.

The Kennebec Journal reports (bit.ly/1Q3BFA8) that 67-year-old Edward McDonald of Woolwich was driving home from his job at the Maine Municipal Association in Augusta when his car went off the road on Route 27.

State trooper Klayton Peckham says it appears MacDonald drowned, but an autopsy will be done this week. He said the road was slick at the time of the accident, just after 7 p.m. Friday.

Pittston Fire Chief Jason Farris said that when first responders arrived, all they could see was the bottom of the vehicle and the passenger compartment was fully submerged.
