One man is dead after a car collided with a tractor lawn-mower in Corinna.

It happened just before 5 pm Wednesday on Corinna Center Road.

Deputies say 79-year-old Dana Doherty of Corinna was killed when a car driven by Mark Franzose of Garland struck him from behind.

Responders are still trying to piece together what happened.

“The sheriff’s office is forensically mapping the scene and we have a reconstructionist on scene to process it,” said Sgt. William Sheehan of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s Deputies were assisted by the Corinna Fire Department and Maine State Police.
