Deputy checks on grieving Gouldsboro resident

ELLSWORTH — On June 24, Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Mariza Gionfriddo checked on a Gouldsboro resident who had lost relatives during the past year. The check was done at the request of another family member who was concerned for the resident’s well-being.

Wet road conditions and traveling over the speed limit contributed to a single-vehicle rollover crash near the intersection of Oak Point Road and Bayside Road in Trenton June 25, Deputy Dylan Hall reported.

Hall said the vehicle, a 2016 Chevrolet, belongs to Shannon Fletcher, 44, of Ellsworth, however a youth was operating the vehicle with two juvenile passengers.

The vehicle had been northbound on Oak Point Road on a sharp corner when it started to hydroplane, at which point the driver overcorrected, causing the vehicle to roll over. No injuries were reported but the Chevrolet had “disabling damage,” Hall said.
