BLUE HILL — Police are investigating the death of a 31-year-old Maine man who was killed when his girlfriend allegedly ran over him with her car during an argument.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office says Andrew Ray of Deer Isle and his girlfriend, 29-year-old Kimberly Phelan, also of Deer isle, had been drinking earlier in the night when they got into an argument in Blue Hill about 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Deputy Chief Richard Bishop told the Bangor Daily News that Ray was outside the car arguing with Phelan when she hit the gas, went in reverse and ran over Ray. He later died at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital.

Authorities are awaiting blood-alcohol test results. Investigators plan to submit evidence to the District Attorney’s Office to determine if charges are warranted.
