A Newcastle teenager was taken to Miles by ambulance after a single-vehicle accident on River Road in Newcastle the morning of Monday, Sept. 19.
The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, Jacob Robison, 19, was taken to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus in Damariscotta, then later transported to Maine Medical Center in Portland, according to a LincolnHealth spokesperson. Maine Medical Center did not have any information about Robison, according to a spokesperson there.
Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Dennison said he was unsure of the extent of Robison’s injuries, but thought he had facial lacerations and a possible leg injury.
According to Dennison, witnesses reported the green GMC sport-utility vehicle was traveling north on River Road when it drifted across the centerline, left the road, and struck a tree. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
Joining the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at the scene were crews from the Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service and the Newcastle Fire Department.
Lincoln County Communications dispatched the Newcastle Fire Department at 10:24 a.m.
