WINDSOR, Maine — A Windsor man suffered serious injuries after dumping his motorcycle on Route 17 on Monday morning, according to police.

Richard Glidden, 34, had attempted to swerve around another vehicle and lost control, according to Capt. Dan Davies of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office.

Davies said the vehicle Glidden tried to avoid was turning onto Route 17 from a side road.

“He couldn’t regain control and dumped it in the roadway,” Davies said.

Glidden, who was not wearing a helmet or any other protection, was airlifted by LifeFlight to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor with serious injuries, according to Davies.

He was listed in stable condition Tuesday, Davies said.

Glidden’s motorcycle was totaled in the crash, according to Davies, and no other vehicles were hit in the crash, which occurred around 10:15 a.m.

The accident remains under investigation, and it’s unclear if speed or alcohol were factors. Mike Pion of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office is reconstructing the crash, Davies said.
