EAST MACHIAS — Maine State Police say speed and alcohol are likely factors in a crash in East Machias that took a teenager’s life.

Sixteen-year-old Francis Finn of Whiting died instantly in the crash late Sunday morning. Finn was a passenger in a pickup truck driven by 20-year-old Aaron Foss of East Machias that crashed on Route 191. Foss suffered bumps and bruises.

Police say Foss was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado at a high rate of speed when the truck went airborne on a slight knoll and crashed into a utility pole and tree.

A crash report will be presented to the district attorney’s office before any decision is made on charges against Foss.
