BRUNSWICK, Maine — A 41-year-old Brunswick man was struck by a car Thursday morning on Beverly Drive after pushing his son out of the vehicle’s path as they walked to the school bus stop.

Troy Fraser was walking his son, whose age was unavailable, to the bus stop on Beverly Drive, in the Bay Bridge Estates mobile home park, when a 2007 Ford passenger car driven by 52-year-old Vincent Maesto, also of Brunswick, veered onto the left side of the road and struck Fraser at about 8 a.m., according to Deputy Chief Marc Hagan of the Brunswick Police Department.

Maesto said he was momentarily blinded by the glare of the sun.

Fraser, who reported leg pain at the time of the incident, was treated and released from Mid Coast Hospital in Brunswick. The child was uninjured, according to Hagan.

No charges were filed as a result of the incident, but Maesto received a summons for failure to register his vehicle more than 30 days after expiration, Hagan said.
