UNITY, Maine — Police say that a driver’s failure to signal his intention to turn left Saturday on the Quaker Hill Road triggered an accident that caused more than $10,000 in damage.

When Aaron McClosky, 20, of Quincy, Mass., reportedly didn’t use his turn signal, Waldo County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jason Trundy said that two motorcyclists riding behind him had to “lay their bikes down” in order to avoid hitting his car.

One rider, Bruce Densmore, 64, of South Gardiner, nevertheless slid into McClosky’s car. He received a bloody nose in the accident and his 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle sustained an estimated $7,000 in damage.

The other rider, Gerald Marson, 58, of Bowdoin, apparently was not injured, but his Harley-Davidson was. The 2009 motorcycle received an estimated $3,500 in damage.

McClosky, who also was unhurt, had about $300 in damage done to his car.

Unity Fire and Unity Ambulance assisted at the scene, along with the sheriff’s office.
