Augusta Man Killed in Crash 

Police say speed and unsafe operation are factors in an accident that killed a 22-year-old Chelsea man who lost control of his motorcycle while doing a wheelie at a high rate of speed on a highway in Leeds.

The Androscoggin Sheriff’s Office said the accident took place on Route 202 around 3:45 p.m. Saturday when Eric Demos lost control of his 1000cc motorcycle, struck a guardrail and was thrown from the bike.

Demos was pronounced dead at the scene.
