LINCOLN, Maine — Two 19-year-olds were issued summonses after an accident on Mohawk Road on Feb. 3 in which both allegedly had blood-alcohol content levels above the legal limit, police said Thursday.

Lucien Gill and Jessica Stanley, both of Lincoln, are due in Lincoln District Court on April 16 to answer the summonses, said Police Chief William Lawrence.

Gill was issued a summons Monday for operating a motor vehicle under the influence, driving without a license, driving to endanger and exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 mph, Lawrence said.

Stanley was issued a summons for possession of alcohol by a minor.

Police allege that Gill had a blood alcohol content level of 0.10 and that Stanley’s BAC was 0.09, Lawrence said.

Under Maine law, a motorist with a BAC greater than 0.08 is operating under the influence.

Gill suffered a serious injury when he was thrown from a pickup truck he was driving that slid off the road, hit an embankment, spun through the air and clipped a tree before coming to rest, police said. Stanley remained inside the vehicle, she told police.

When reserve police Officer Corey Stratton responded to a 911 call from a neighbor and got to the accident scene at shortly after 8 a.m., Stanley was outside the vehicle and Gill was lying on the ground, conscious but hurt, Lawrence has said.

Stanley was treated and released from Penobscot Valley Hospital after the accident, and Gill was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. He was released from the hospital on Feb. 4, a hospital official said.
