An unidentified individual sustained non-life-threatening injuries in an all-terrain vehicle rollover in an old gravel pit off Bunker Hill Road in Jefferson the evening of Saturday, July 2.
The Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service transported the driver to the hospital with a head injury and a possible broken leg, according to Jefferson Fire Chief Walter Morris.
Morris said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, however, anytime there is head trauma, the department’s emergency medical technicians take appropriate precautions.
The fire chief said EMTs treated the head injury and stabilized the leg.
He said the victim’s friends had been able to get the ATV off the victim and initially tried to bring the injured rider to Cross Road to meet emergency responders.
Morris said the terrain in the area made the plan unfeasible and first responders were able to reach the victim on Musquash Road, a narrow, private dirt road, with rescue vehicles.
According to Morris, the Maine Warden Service investigated the accident, assisted by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. A spokesman for the Maine Warden Service did not respond to a request for information.
Lincoln County Communications paged Jefferson Fire and Rescue shortly before 9 p.m.
