HOWLAND, Maine — A 21-year-old Millinocket man was home from the hospital Friday after being struck by a car as he and two friends walked along River Road late Wednesday, officials said.
Frank Inman was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor after the accident was reported at 6:20 p.m., well after dark, firefighters said.
Inman and two friends were walking along River Road, with Inman the one farthest into the street, when a Mitsubishi Lancer driven by a Howland resident struck him, Deputy Patricia McLaughlin of the Penobscot Sheriff’s Department said.
McLaughlin said she didn’t know whether the driver, 37-year-old Brien Corriveau of Howland, would face charges for the accident.
She is awaiting results of blood alcohol tests done as standard procedure, she said.
Such tests can take several weeks. The accident investigation is continuing.
