Police have identified the man killed Wednesday night, when his car went off a road in Bath’s South End neighborhood and crashed into a parked car in a private driveway, as 65-year-old Paul Hurd of Phippsburg.

Lt. Robert Savary said police believe Hurd had “a medical issue” while driving south on High Street where his car veered off the road, continued up a small grade and hit the parked car.

There was no evidence that drug or alcohol use was a factor or that Hurd maneuvered his car to prevent the crash, Savary said.

Police were called around 6:09 p.m. to investigate the report of a car crash at 462 High St. When they arrived, Cpl. Jason Aucoin and Officer Shaun Cavanaugh discovered Hurd’s body in the driver’s seat of a 2012 Toyota Camry.
