Officers from Lincoln and the Maine State Police are investigating a deadly car-motorcycle crash near Drinkwater's Variety on Route 2.

The man who died in crash in Lincoln on Saturday afternoon has been identified as Jeffrey Ludden, 50, of Howland, according to WGME-TV.

Ludden was traveling south on Route 2 about 3:30 p.m. when a woman drove her car out of the parking lot of Drinkwater’s Variety and into the path of his motorcycle, according to police.

Witnesses said that the store’s parking lot was nearly full when the crash happened and that the red Chevrolet sedan the woman was driving was heavily damaged on the driver side door after the motorcyclist went into a skid and struck it.

The woman driving the car, whose name has yet to be released, was taken to Penobscot Valley Hospital for treatment of injuries she suffered in the crash.
