Lewiston man killed in car rollover

Speed was a factor and alcohol is suspected, police say.

DURHAM  — Maine State Police say a Lewiston man died when his car rolled over multiple times in Durham.

Trooper Nathan Jamo tells the Sun Journal of Lewiston that 53-year-old Barry Morrison was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash late Friday afternoon.

Police say speed was "an overwhelming factor" and alcohol is suspected because there was an open can of beer in the 2004 Mitsubishi Galant.

Morrison was headed east on Soper Road when he lost control of the car and it rolled at least five or six times. An investigation is continuing.
