LEBANON, Maine — A Sanford man was injured Wednesday afternoon after his motorcycle collided with a car on Route 111, officials said.

The 44-year-old man, whose name was not released, was thrown over the handlebars of his motorcycle on impact, according to Lebanon Rescue Assistant Chief Jason Cole.

Cole said the biker was thrown an estimated 50 feet on impact, and was lying in the middle of the roadway when rescue crews arrived.

The victim was wearing a helmet and motorcycle jacket, which Cole said likely prevented more significant injuries.

The operator of the car was not injured, and the road was closed for about an hour while crews cleaned up the scene.

The motorcycle rider was treated at Goodall Hospital in Sanford for injuries not considered life-threatening.
