PARKMAN, Maine — A man and woman were critically injured Tuesday afternoon when the motorcycle they were traveling on struck a vehicle that was turning into a Route 150 driveway.

The unidentified victims were airlifted by LifeFlight helicopter and taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor after the 3:10 p.m. crash, according to Maine State Police Trooper Marc Poulin.

Mary Santoro, 54, of Parkman told police that she was signaling to turn into her driveway when the motorcycle hit her 1993 Subaru, Poulin said. Santoro was shaken up but was not injured, he said.

It is unclear whether the driver of the northbound motorcycle was attempting to pass Santoro’s vehicle, Poulin said. Damage to Santoro’s car was to the left front fender and tire axle.

The impact caused the motorcycle to strike a guardrail and come to rest in the ditch. A reconstruction is being done of the accident scene.

Guilford firefighters and Mayo Regional emergency medical technicians assisted at the scene.
