HERMON, Maine — A Hermon man suffered severe injuries after he was ejected from his truck that flipped end-over-end Saturday night.

The man, in his mid-50s, was traveling on the Fuller Road when he missed a turn, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office Deputy David Quinn said Sunday night.

“He missed a corner, drove through a field, drove through a ditch, snapped the guidewire off a pole and then hit a berm,” said Quinn. “After he hit that, his truck flipped end-over-end two or three times.”

The man suffered a “severe head injury with several broken bones,” said Quinn.

Quinn said he could not release the man’s name because he had not yet been able to speak to the victim’s family.

The Hermon man’s Ford F-350 pickup truck was totaled, he said. The driver was the only occupant.

The victim was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.

“We haven’t determined if speed, alcohol or road conditions were a factor,” said Quinn. “It’s still under investigation.”
