CARMEL — The Maine Warden Service said a 58-year-old Carmel woman died in an all-terrain vehicle accident.

Officials say 58-year-old Joyce Girt was found dead by emergency medical personnel near her ATV in Carmel on Friday evening.

Her husband, 67-year-old Robert Girt, was found underneath his four wheeler and complained of head, neck and leg pain. He was taken to a Bangor hospital via Life Flight helicopter and then flown to a Portland hospital with serious injuries.

The body of Joyce Girt has been transported to Augusta for an autopsy. Wardens say alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
