A Bangor man has died from his injuries suffered in a single-car crash during the wee hours Thanksgiving morning on Interstate 95 in Sidney, police said Friday.

Christopher Galvin, 44, suffered several injuries after he lost control of his van and it overturned, Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland said in a news release Friday. Galvin had been treated at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, where he died Friday morning.

The crash happened just before 1 a.m. Nov. 26 as Galvin drove his 2002 Chevrolet Venture south on Interstate 95. Galvin lost control of the van near mile 116, where the van veered off the road and struck rock ledges. The van overturned and came to rest on its roof, and Galvin, who was alone inside, had to be cut free from the van, police said.

The accident was discovered by a tractor-trailer driver. That section of the interstate was closed for about 90 minutes while state police troopers investigated the crash.

State police Trooper Diane Perkins Vance said the cause of the crash is still under investigation and so far no witnesses who saw the crash have come forward.

Police asked that anyone with information on the crash call Maine State Police in Augusta at 624-7074.
