CORINTH — Police continue to investigate the weekend death of an Exeter man who died after he was struck while out riding a bike in Corinth.
The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year-old Joseph Sweet was riding the three-wheeled vehicle on Route 43 on Sunday morning when he was struck by a pickup truck.
Chief Deputy Troy Morton says the driver of the truck – a 28-year-old Corinth man – apparently took his eyes off the road right before impact.
Morton tells WABI-TV that neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors.
The results of the investigation will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office to determine whether any charges will be filed.
