KENDUSKEAG, Maine — Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man involved in a hit-and-run accident on First Street on Wednesday night.

Deputy Mark Lloyd of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office said Friday deputies were called to the scene shortly after 9:30 p.m.

The driver, whose name Lloyd did not release, allegedly left a party at a First Street mobile home, went to the end of the dead-end road, turned around and drove back toward Route 15, striking a man who was walking in the street, the deputy said.

Lloyd did not release the name of the victim. The suspect did not stop after striking the man.

The victim was transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Lloyd said. The suspect’s white Chevy pickup truck was located by deputies in Kenduskeag on Thursday but the suspect, for whom Lloyd had no description, remains at large.

Numerous witnesses told police the suspect was traveling too fast for the road, according to Lloyd. First Street is only one-eighth of a mile long.

The incident remains under investigation, Lloyd said. Anyone with information should call the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office at 947-4585.
