By Bill Trotter, BDN Staff

BAR HARBOR, Maine — Police are investigating a single-vehicle accident early Saturday morning that resulted in two people being hospitalized at a Bangor hospital.

The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. when a truck going east on Crooked Road went off the north side of the road and struck a utility pole, a fence and a tree, Bar Harbor police Officer Chris Wharff said Saturday. A long piece of yellow tape marked off the scene of the accident Saturday afternoon a few yards east of the inter-section of Crooked Road and Norway Drive.

The passenger in the vehicle, Chelsea Libitzki, 22, of Mount Desert Island, was taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, he said. Libitzki remained hospitalized Sunday. Police and hospital personnel were unable to provide an update on her condition.

The driver, Chad Grass, 21, of Mount Desert Island, was treated at EMMC and released.

The truck was not demolished in the accident.

“I don’t believe there was a lot of damage to the vehicle,” Wharff said.

Wharff released no further details about the accident, which remains under investigation.
