By Terry Karkos, Sun Journal

MEXICO, Maine — A Mexico man was injured late Thursday afternoon when police say he failed to stop at a Rose Street stop sign and was struck by a car.

Gavin Halacy, 20, complained of pain in his left hip and was taken by Med-Care Ambulance to Rumford Hospital, Mexico police Lt. Roy Hodsdon said Friday morning.

Hodsdon said Halacy was riding west downhill on Rose Street, which is off Route 17 (Roxbury Road) just north of Tommy Guns Pitstop.

He said the bicyclist didn’t stop at the stop sign at the intersection with Kimball Avenue and was struck at 3:57 p.m. on his left side by a 2000 Chrysler Concorde driven by Jennifer Theriault, 32, of Rumford.

Halacy was thrown onto the Chrysler’s hood, Hodsdon said.

Theriault wasn’t injured, but Hodsdon estimated damage to the hood and bumper of her car at $500 to $800. The mountain bike was wrecked, he said.

No charges were filed.
