Orrington Man Dies in ATV Incident
Augusta, Maine - A 57-year-old Orrington man died on Thursday, October 15, 2009 in an ATV incident while out scouting for deer in his favorite hunting area in preparation for the upcoming season.
Dion Seymour Jr., 57, of Orrington was reported missing at 9 p.m. Thursday, and was last seen by his wife 12 hours earlier. She notified the Maine Warden Service when he failed to return home.
A Maine State Police trooper found Mr. Seymour’s vehicle parked on Old County Way off Winkumpaugh Road in Ellsworth.
Seven Game Wardens searched the area and trails using ATVs, and located Mr. Seymour just before midnight on a steep trail with a granite ledge. Mr. Seymour apparently rolled his ATV and it landed on him, according to Maine Warden Service Sgt. Kevin Adam.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the incident.
Mr. Seymour’s family has been notified.
The Maine Warden Service was assisted by the Maine State Police, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office and Ellsworth Fire Department.
