Maine State Police say a 30-year-old Leeds man is wanted for questioning in connection with an incident in that town Sunday night in which a man was run down by a pickup truck in a driveway.

Police describe Donald White as 5’9″ tall, weighing 190 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Police say he has not been seen since Sunday night when the pick up he was driving struck 31-year-old Jason Gagnon of Turner.

The incident took place in the driveway of a house off Route 219, occupied by a woman that both men knew.

The truck, which is owned by a friend of White’s, has been impounded at the State Police crime lab in Augusta. Gagnon is being treated at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and his initial condition was listed as critical.

White is currently free on bail for an unrelated charge of kidnapping and robbery earlier this year. He is also a registered sex offender.

State Police say anyone who has had contact with White this week or knows his whereabouts is asked to call the State Police barracks in Gray at 1-800-228-0857 or the nearest police department.
