Barrington man dies from injuries suffered in ATV crash
BARRINGTON — A local man who was airlifted following a serious ATV accident died at Maine Medical Center in Portland sometime Wednesday night, according to Police Chief Richard Conway.
Barry Poole of Barrington sustained serious injuries after his ATV rolled onto its side Tuesday afternoon. As a result, Dartmouth Hitchcock Advanced Response Team crews flew him to Maine Medical Hospital, where he was previously listed in critical condition.
Conway said the accident remains under investigation, which will be only made more challenging as Poole was the only occupant on the ATV.
“It’s too early to tell and we’re working with limited information,” Conway said, and investigators are looking into all aspects of the incident.
“Probably speed was a factor,” Conway said, adding it may not be possible to determine whether alcohol was involved.
