YARMOUTH, Maine — A Yarmouth man is recovering at Maine Medical Center in Portland after a car collided with his motorcycle on Wednesday morning, police said.

Matthew Wasielewski, 49, was driving on North Road when a white Hyundai driven by Everett Eldred, 39, of Gorham attempted to turn onto North Road and struck Wasielewski’s bike, Yarmouth police Lt. Dean Perry said.

Wasielewski’s motorcycle had the right of way, Perry said, so Eldred, who was not injured, was summoned for failure to yield. The intersection has no stop or yield signs, according to Perry.

Wasielewski, who was wearing a helmet and proper motorcycle attire, was taken by ambulance to Maine Medical Center for treatment. Perry did not know the extent of his injuries.
