FRENCHVILLE, Maine (AP) - Maine state police say a seatbelt saved the life of a 21-year-old man who lost control of his car and drove into the corner of a house in Frenchville, then landed upside down.

Police say Ryan Remalia, of Madawaska, was travelling east on Route 1 just before midnight on Saturday when he lost control of his Mitsubishi Lancer. They say the vehicle came to rest on its roof after pulling down utility lines.

Authorities say the home was occupied at the time, but on Remalia was injured. He was taken to Northern Medical Center for treatment of what police described as non-life-threatening injuries.
