Naples Crash Victim Identified

NAPLES, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man killed in Tuesday afternoon’s fatal accident in Naples.

Forty-four-year-old Shannon Ronan was operating a UPS truck travelling westbound on Route 302 (Roosevelt Trail). Investigators say Ronan was stopped in traffic, waiting to make a left hand turn.

A Time Warner Cable bucket truck, driven by Michael Hanrahan, 42, apparently failed to stop and rear-ended the UPS truck, pushing it into the oncoming lane where it was struck head-on by a tractor-trailer carrying bulk propane.

The tractor-trailer, which was owned by Pickard Transportation was driven by Dewight Pickard, 55.

Ronan, who was from Gray, died in the crash.

Investigators say at this time, no charges will be filed in connection with the accident. The Sheriff’s Office says the Maine State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement and an Accident Re-constructionist from the Windham Police Department continue to investigate the accident.
