BREWER, Maine — A 55-year-old pedestrian suffered head injuries Tuesday when he was struck by a truck and was thrown into the path of another vehicle on Wilson Street, according to police.

Bruce Lolar of Brewer was wearing dark clothing when he stepped in front of a Ford pickup heading westbound about 5:15 p.m and driven by Robert Grant, 44, of Brewer, Sgt. Jason Moffit said in a press release Friday.

After he was struck by Grant’s pickup, Lolar was thrown into the path of a 2008 Saturn stopped in the eastbound lane. It was driven by Dawnetta Partridge, 36, of Bangor. Lolar came to rest under the front bumper of the driver’s side of her vehicle, Moffit said.

Lolar was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. An EMMC spokesman said Friday afternoon that he had no information on a patient by that name.

The preliminary investigation has determined that speed and alcohol were not factors, according to police.

Lolar was wearing dark clothing, not using a crosswalk and the drivers did not have time to stop, police said.

No charges are expected, Moffitt said.

CORRECTION:

An early version of this story requires correction. Dawnetta Partridge, 36, was stopped in the eastbound lane of Wilson St. Bruce Lolar was hit by a Ford pickup heading westbound and rolled under Partridge’s car. Lolar was not hit by Partridge’s car.
