Biddeford police say 20-year-old Anthony Ciccone of Pepperell, Mass., was killed when the Ford Explorer crashed into a utility pole early Sunday. Deputy Chief JoAnne Fisk says the driver, 20-year-old Christopher M. Bennett of Johnston, R.I., was booked into the York County Jail on $300,000 bailafter being treated at a hospital. Police say the episode unfolded when two men suspected of being intoxicated tried to force their way into a dorm room at the University of New England and then drove away, at one point hitting 80 mph in a 30 mph zone. Fisk says Bennett and Ciccone were visiting friends at UNE.
