MOUNT DESERT — The victim of a single-vehicle crash on Mount Desert Island over the weekend has been identified by police as a 43-year-old Trenton woman.

Investigators say Hope Cummings was driving north on Route 102 at about 2 p.m. Saturday when her car went off the road, struck a ledge and rolled over at least twice before coming to rest on its wheels on the opposite side of the road.

Police tell the Bangor Daily News that Cummings was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is still unclear why Cummings lost control of her vehicle because the road was dry at the time. The investigation is continuing and will include toxicology testing.
