A Waldoboro man was flown to a Bangor hospital after crashing while fleeing from law enforcement on Manktown Road, Thursday, Aug. 13.
Police attempted to arrest Travis Crowley, 38, on a felony warrant shortly after 3:30 p.m., but he fled, according to a press release from Waldoboro Police Chief John Lash. After a roughly mile-long chase along Manktown Road, he crashed near Route 235.
Crowley had to be extricated from the vehicle, a 2009 GMC 1500 pickup truck. A LifeFlight helicopter landed in the nearby parking lot of Medomak Valley High School and flew him to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor.
On Monday, Aug. 17, Crowley remained hospitalized. The hospital did not release his condition.
Crowley will be charged in connection with the chase, according to Lash, who said information on the charges would be released when he is charged.
The Maine State Police are investigating the incident, according to the press release.
Waldoboro Emergency Medical Services and the Waldoboro Fire Department responded to the scene, while the Warren Fire Department assisted LifeFlight at the school.
