FRENCHVILLE, Maine — A 59-year-old Frenchville man was in stable condition at a Bangor hospital on Sunday after suffering internal injuries in a motor vehicle accident on Route 1 on Saturday, state police said Sunday.

Timothy Ouellette was driving his 2004 Harley-Davidson south on Route 1 behind a 2012 Ford pickup driven by Todd Daigle, 50, of Fort Kent, state police Sgt. Brian Harris said.

The accident occurred when Daigle was turning toward a driveway and Ouellette either didn’t realize or couldn’t avoid the turn, Harris said. The motorcycle hit the truck and Ouellette was thrown to the road in front of the pickup and hit again, Harris said.

An ambulance took Ouellette to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent and eventually Ouellette was transferred to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Harris said.

Harris’ press statement did not indicate whether Ouellette was wearing a helmet. State police Trooper Chris Cyr’s investigation is continuing.

CORRECTION:

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated in the headline that Timothy Ouellette is from Fort Kent.
