MDIFW NEWS: Woodville fatal ATV crash

A Woodville man is dead following an ATV crash in that town. Maine game wardens responded to the scene of a fatal ATV crash this morning around 9:00 off a dirt logging road in Woodville. The victim, John M. Boucher, age 47, was a resident of Woodville and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Boucher was last seen Sunday night, October 1, at approximately 7:30. He was operating a Honda Rubicon ATV and failed to negotiate a 90-degree turn at the bottom of a hill. The ATV came to rest on Boucher after striking a large rock. Boucher was not wearing a helmet and game wardens say speed appears to be a contributing factor in this crash.

Assisting game wardens at the scene were Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office and East Millinocket Fire and Rescue. The body was transported to Clay Funeral Home in Lincoln. This incident is still under investigation.
