WASHINGTON, Maine — A 51-year-old Union man is in fair condition at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor following a Friday night motorcycle crash.

At approximate 10:20 p.m. Friday, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a crash near 468 Augusta Road, also known as Route 17, in Washington, according to Chief Deputy Tim Carroll.

Steven Sanner, 51, of Union lost control of his 1988 Harley Davidson motorcycle and crashed, according to the news release from the chief deputy. Sanner was found by a passerby. Sanner was transported to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport by Union Ambulance and then taken to EMMC.
