Police seeking details of why injured Madawaska man was found lying in road

By Jen Lynds, BDN Staff

EAGLE LAKE, Maine — Maine State Police investigators were working Tuesday to sort out information in the case of a Madawaska man who was found critically injured on Saturday lying in the roadway.

State police Detective Sgt. John Cote said Tuesday afternoon that “a lot of the answers remain elusive” in the quest to determine the circumstances behind the injury of Randy Willard, 24.

Police found Willard lying on Dennis Street in Eagle Lake after possibly falling from a pickup truck.

He suffered a serious head injury, according to police, and was taken to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent before being transferred to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

He was listed in critical condition on Sunday. Hospital representatives said Tuesday afternoon that they had no information on his current status.

Investigators suspect that Willard fell from a pickup truck because that’s how the 911 call came in.

Cote said that police are hoping to question Willard about the incident once his condition improves.

They were seeking the public’s assistance Tuesday to fill in additional details.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call state police in Houlton at 532-5400.

Trooper Todd Stetson is the primary investigator and he was assisted at the scene by Detective Scott Bryant and Sgt. Brian Harris.
