A Central Maine man is dead following a Tuesday morning crash in Skowhegan.

According to the KJ, 51 year old Shawn Nutt, of Vassalboro, was killed when his SUV left Eaton Mountain Road in Skowhegan and struck a tree.

The crash happened at about 5:30 on Tuesday morning.

According to reports from police, Nutt was not wearing a seatbelt.  Because of this, the airbag was not enough to stop him from hitting the windshield of the 2006 Nissan Xterra he was driving.  Additionally, law enforcement believes he was using an electronic device when the accident happened.

The crash remains under investigation.
