HODGDON, Maine — A Hodgdon man suffered a leg injury on Thursday in a motorcycle and car accident on Calais Road.
Joseph Hogan, 68, was operating his 1996 Harley Davidson behind two vehicles when he decided to pass them just before 2:30 p.m., according to Maine State Police trooper Dan Marquis.
Hogan did not notice that the lead car, a 1985 Ford Limited driven by William Livorsi, 57, of Hodgdon had the left turn signal on at the time, Marquis reported.
Livorsi did not see Hogan and started to turn left into the residence at 163 Calais Road.
Marquis said that Hogan came into contact with the front driver corner of Livorsi’s car, causing his right ankle to wedge between his bike and the car.
Hogan was not thrown from the bike and stopped a short distance down the road. Hogan sustained a non-life threatening injury to his right leg, Marquis said.
The Houlton Ambulance Department took Hogan to Houlton Regional Hospital.
Trooper Ethan Doody investigated the crash. The U.S. Border Patrol assisted at the scene.
