A Stacyville man died in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Sherman Saturday night.

The Maine Warden Service said Bryon Jacobs, 38, was operating the ATV with a 16-year-old male passenger when it overturned on a trail northeast of Interstate 95, near mile 266 south.

The teenager placed the call for help. Wardens said it appears the left front tire of the ATV may have fallen off, causing it to overturn. Jacobs sustained a head injury. He was not wearing helmet. He died at the scene.

The teen was taken to Houlton Regional Hospital with a head injury.

The accident remains under investigation, the warden service said.
