A Camden motorcyclist was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a collision with a pickup truck at the intersection of Route 1 and Back Meadow Road in Nobleboro on Thursday, Sept. 14.
Mark Parker, 48, of Camden, was operating a yellow BMW motorcycle north on Route 1, according to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Aaron Beck. As a vehicle in front of him was making a left turn onto Back Meadow Road, toward Center Street, the motorcycle attempted to go around the vehicle on the right.
At the same time, James Brawn, 30, of Bath, was driving a black GMC pickup truck south on Route 1, turning left onto Back Meadow Road, toward Damariscotta, according to Beck.
As the motorcycle went around the vehicle in front of it, the bike “T-boned” the GMC pickup. Beck said the force of the collision spun the pickup truck around and knocked a wheel off the truck. The wheel struck a fourth vehicle on Back Meadow Road.
Parker was wearing his helmet at the time of the collision, according to Beck. He was taken to LincolnHealth’s Miles Campus in Damariscotta. Brawn was not hurt. Brawn and Parker were the sole occupants of the vehicles.
Lincoln County Communications dispatched emergency services at 5:09 p.m.
The Central Lincoln County Ambulance Service, Damariscotta Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, and Nobleboro Fire Department responded to the scene.
