Massachusetts Man Dies in Standish Crash After Suspected Medical Event

Standish, Maine – A tragic single-vehicle crash claimed the life of an 80-year-old man from Beverly, Massachusetts on Monday morning. According to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, the driver, identified as John Behnke, suffered a suspected medical event before the incident occurred.

At approximately 6:30 a.m., emergency crews responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash on Chadbourne Road. Upon arrival, authorities discovered a 2014 Nissan Altima that had veered off the roadway and collided with several trees. First responders immediately administered CPR to Behnke, but unfortunately, their efforts were in vain, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigations suggest that Behnke’s medical event preceded the crash, and his death is not believed to be a result of the collision. The vehicle sustained minor damages during the incident.

To facilitate the investigation, Chadbourne Road was temporarily reduced to one lane for approximately two hours. The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is working diligently to gather more information about the incident.
