LIBERTY, Maine — A Michigan woman who suffered head and shoulder injuries last week in a motorcycle accident on Route 3 in Liberty has been released from the hospital, a nursing supervisor at Eastern Maine Medical Center confirmed Thursday.

Anita Bills, 58, of Mio, Mich., had been traveling in a group with three other motorcycles at 11:15 a.m. July 19, when the accident happened, according to Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

A vehicle in front of the group of riders had stopped to make a left turn, and the motorcycles slowed, too, Trundy said.

Bills, who was riding her own 2004 Yamaha, hit the rear wheel of her husband’s motorcycle.

“It caused her to lose control of the motorcycle,” Trundy said.

Her motorcycle fell on the right side, and Bills struck her shoulder and head on the pavement. She was not wearing a helmet, Trundy said.

Her husband, Richard Bills, was not injured.

Anita Bills was taken by ambulance to Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast and from there was transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center, where she was listed in good condition on Tuesday.

Liberty Fire and Rescue and Liberty Ambulance assisted the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office at the accident scene, Trundy said.
