Motorcycle rider hurt in Hampden crash

HAMPDEN, Maine — A motorcycle rider from Plymouth was taken to a Bangor hospital Monday after he was injured in a collision on Western Avenue.

Trevor Schultz, 22, a former Stockton Springs resident who recently moved to Plymouth, was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment of cuts to his head and body as well as shoulder and neck pain, according to Hampden police Officer Ben Eyles.

Eyles said the accident occurred about 4:20 p.m., as Joshua Giles, 24, of Hermon began to make a left turn into the Hampden Country Club driveway. As he did so, Giles traveled into the path of two motorcycles, one driven by Schultz and the other by his brother Morgan Mayo, 28, of Stockton Springs.

Mayo said at the accident scene that he was able to swerve around the car but that his brother, who was traveling behind him, “had nowhere to go.” He said the car and Schultz’s motorcycle collided.

Eyles said that Schultz’s 1999 Suzuki GSXR was demolished in the crash and that Giles’ 2003 Honda Civic had about $1,500 in damage. Giles was not injured, he said.

The officer also said that Schultz was not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred.

The driver was not immediately charged, but Eyles said he likely would be summoned for failure to yield.
