LEBANON, Maine — An unidentified man suffered life-threatening injuries Monday after being struck by a vehicle on Milton Mills Road in North Lebanon.
According to Assistant Rescue Chief Jason Cole, a male pedestrian was struck by a vehicle around 4:39 p.m. Monday in the area of 339 Milton Mills Road.
Maine State Police said Monday night that identities of those involved in the accident will not be released until the next of kin is notified of the incident.
State Police would not release any further information Monday.
The Rescue Department attempted to get two helicopters — from Lifeflight of Maine, and DHART, of New Hampshire — to transport the patient, but due to weather conditions the helicopters were unable to respond, Cole said.
The pedestrian was transported by a Lebanon ambulance to Goodall Hospital in Sanford with very serious injuries, he said.
The vehicle involved in the accident sustained extensive damage, according to Cole.
Two hours after the accident, the section of Milton Mills Road from Keay Road to the Acton town line remained closed to traffic as emergency crews worked on-scene and State Police were reconstructing the accident.
Monday night, drivers were asked to seek alternative routes around the affected portion of the road.
Milton Mills Road was reopened by 8:05 p.m.
