CORINTH, Maine — Two local men driving Harley-Davidson motorcycles north on Beans Mill Road encountered a vehicle pulling out of its driveway Sunday morning.

One motorcyclist wasn’t able to stop and he slammed his 2009 Harley into the driveway-exiting vehicle, Trooper Brian Bean of the Maine State Police said after the collision.

“There was probably $5,000 in damages to the car,” he said. “The motorcycle was totaled.”

Luckily, “The second one was able to stop before impact,” the trooper said.

The 36-year-old driver of the first motorcycle, who Bean declined to identify, suffered minor injuries to a knee and a hand. The driver of the car was not injured, he said.

No criminal charges are pending, Bean said.

The collision occurred at around 11:30 a.m. Sunday near 388 Beans Mill Road.

“He’s pretty lucky,” Bean said of the motorcycle driver.
