BLAINE, Maine — A 23-year-old man was flown to a Bangor hospital Tuesday after he was injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident.

Maine State Police Sgt. Tom Pelletier said Wednesday that Jeremy Anderson, hometown unavailable, was riding with a group when the accident occurred at 2 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Pelletier, Anderson was headed west on Pierce Road with the group. The riders were attempting to access an ATV trail on the roadway.

As Anderson attempted to enter the trail, he drove over a number of holes in the roadway and lost control of his 2006 Arctic Cat.

Pelletier said the vehicle rolled over and came to a rest on top of Anderson, who suffered a head injury.

The 23-year-old was taken by Crown Ambulance to The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle for initial treatment. He then was flown by Crown Air to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

Pelletier said Anderson was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

An official at EMMC said Anderson remained in serious condition Wednesday morning.

Troopers Chuck Michaud and Dan Deschaine went to the scene of the crash. The Mars Hill Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
