Maine Man Killed After Crashing into Central Maine House on Monday Morning
On a day that saw multiple deaths due to drivers crashing into Maine homes, a Central Maine man is dead following a similar incident.
According to WGME 13, police ended up responding to calls for help at about 1 in the morning on Monday in the area of Russell Street in Lewiston.
When officials arrived, they discovered that a vehicle, driven by Brian Beaucage, 31 of Turner, had crashed into a house at 41 Russell Street.
Police on scene say that the driver, who was operating a Mazda6, had crashed into the garage of the home. The crash caused extensive damage to the structure as well as a vehicle that was parked inside the garage at the time of the crash.

Though the driver was killed in the crash, nobody at or inside the home was injured during the crash.
