A Lisbon man died late Saturday afternoon when the all-terrain vehicle he was driving in Corinna slid down an embankment and rolled over him, police said.

The 61-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his wife, who was riding on the ATV, was taken to Sebasticook Valley Health in Pittsfield. Penobscot County Chief Deputy William Sheehan said the woman is expected to recover from her injuries.

Sheehan said the crash occurred about 5:30 p.m. Saturday near an ATV trail. He said it appeared there was no shoulder where the couple were riding and the ATV apparently slid down a hill toward a boggy area.

Both the man and the woman were wearing helmets, Sheehan said.

Their names will not be released until family members can be notified, Sheehan said.
