The Maine Warden Service said Gerard Belanger of Wallagrass was cutting tree length wood with his son on his woodlot around 4 p.m. Belanger was using his ATV and a trailer to haul logs from the woodlot to a log pile behind his home.

Wardens say Belanger was attempting to haul a large log down a moderately sloped hill when it appears the weight of the log caused the trailer and ATV to become unstable and crash. Belanger was thrown from the vehicle. He was found by his son after he did not return to the woodlot.

The injured man was transported by ambulance to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent. The Warden Service said Belanger passed away at the hospital shortly after 6:00 p.m. Monday. The accident remains under investigation.
