ENFIELD, Maine – An unidentified male was severely injured when he was hit by a pickup truck while pushing a bicycle on Route 2, state police said Sunday.

The individual, whose name was not immediately available, was walking with friends about a quarter-mile north of the Route 155 intersection when he was struck by the red truck, said state police Sgt. David Millett.

He was taken by ambulance to Penobscot Valley Hospital, Millett said.

The accident was reported at about 4:27 p.m. State police had volunteer firefighters block both lanes of Route 2 for several hours afterward as Trooper Larry Anderson, the accident’s investigator, examined the scene.

Information about the driver was not immediately available at the scene.

No one else was reported injured.
