MANCHESTER, Maine — A Maine sheriff’s department said a 53-year-old woman was hurt when she lost control of her motorcycle during the United Bikers of Maine toy run in Manchester.

The Kennebec County Sheriff’s Department said 53-old Kathy Jesiolowski of Poland was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston Sunday with what was believed to be a serious head injury.

Her condition was not immediately available.

Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Mills told the Kennebec Journal Jesiolowski was wearing a helmet.

Mills said Jesiolowski was part of a group of riders in a construction zone when the foot peg of a motorcycle in front of Jesiolowski hit an orange barrel and knocked it into her path. She was unable to avoid the barrel.
