BANGOR, Maine — A local woman suffered minor injuries Sunday afternoon when the driver of the motorcycle on which she was a passenger lost control of the bike, police said.

Timothy McCann, 58, of Bangor was attempting to turn from Patten Street to Third Street when the bike hit some loose gravel and tipped over shortly after noon, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

McCann’s passenger, Theresa Snyder, 38, also of Bangor, complained of minor head injuries and was transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment, Edwards said.

A hospital spokesman had no information on Snyder’s condition.

Edwards said the bike was in the process of stopping when it hit the loose gravel. Neither McCann or Snyder were wearing helmets, he said.

Bangor police Officer Paul Colley and Edwards provided assistance at the scene.
