MOSCOW — A man suffered a severe foot fracture and was flown to the hospital on Friday after he crashed his ATV on Stream Road.

The man, Chris Butler, had been riding his ATV too fast when he lost control, said Edith Smith, director of information and education for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

She did not know where he is from or his exact age, though he is in his early 20s. He was taken by LifeFlight of Maine helicopter to a hospital, though she did not know which one.

Bingham fire and ambulance personnel, in addition to the Maine Warden Service, responded to the 4:18 p.m. call. Butler and a friend, Brad Reed, had been riding separate Yamaha 350 Banshees, Smith said. Both were wearing helmets.

Bingham Fire Chief Scott Laweryson did not have details on the crash, and the paramedics from Upper Kennebec Valley Ambulance Service who responded to the scene were not available on Sunday.

A spokeswoman at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor said no information was available about Butler.
