POLAND, Maine — A Poland man was killed Thursday night when the motorcycle he was driving was struck by a car, according to police.

Kevin Lemm, 45, was heading northbound on Plains Road when his motorcycle was hit by a southbound 1996 Oldsmobile operated by Glenn Stoodley, 21, of Poland, according to Lt. Glenn Holt of the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.

Holt said Stoodley crossed the centerline and struck Lemm’s bike. Lemm was transported by Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, where he was pronounced dead.

Lemm’s wife, Elisha, 47, a passenger on the bike, was also taken to CMMC and is listed in critical condition.

Stoodley and his passenger, Callie Ollis, 28, of Poland, were not injured in the crash, Holt said.

The accident remains under investigation, and a state police team will reconstruct it.
