Maxwell Goguen, 24, was northbound from North Anson toward Embden when his 2006 Chevrolet Malibu went off the left side of the road just before 7:30 p.m., according to Chief Deputy Mike Mitchell of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the crash.

Goguen, who was bleeding from his head, was taken by Anson-Madison-Starks Ambulance to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan, where he was treated for head injuries and cuts, Mitchell said Thursday afternoon.

It was not clear Thursday why the car had left the road, he said.

“Right now, it’s under investigation to determine whether or not any drugs or alcohol caused the crash,” Mitchell said.

Mitchell said Goguen was not wearing a seat belt, and he got out of the car on his own after the crash.


The car had significant damage and was towed from the scene by Charlie & Son Sales & Service Inc. of Madison, according to Mitchell. He said there is a steep embankment where the crash occurred.

Patrol Deputy Jacob Dever responded to and is investigating the crash, which occurred near 113 Fahi Pond Road, Mitchell said. Fahi Pond Road runs from U.S. Route 201A in North Anson, also referred to as Kennebec River Road, to Cross Town Road in Embden.

The Anson Fire Department assisted at the scene, and a firefighter helped emergency crews inside the ambulance, according to Mitchell.

A neighbor on Fahi Pond Road dialed 911 to report the crash, he said.
