Police say speed may have been a factor in a head-on collision that killed a man in Belgrade. Kennebec County sheriff’s deputies say just before 9 o’clock last night 30-year-old Jeremiah Baker was driving south on Route 27, in the wrong lane. Baker’s car crashed into a car headed north, driven by 31-year old Jessica Bourget. We’re told Baker was thrown from his car and died at the scene. Bourget was taken to a local hospital with a crushed ankle and a broken leg. Authorities say Baker was not wearing his seat belt.
