PITTSFIELD — A Brownville man was seriously injured in a single vehicle accident Friday on Interstate 95.

Caleb Farley, 25, was driving north near mile marker 144 when he lost control of his Dodge pickup truck on a patch of ice and slid into the median, Maine State Police Sgt. Jeff Beach said.

The truck rolled over at least once and Farley, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was partially ejected, Beach said. There were no passengers.

Beach said Farley was driving too fast for the slippery road conditions.

Farley was taken by ambulance to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. A hospital spokeswoman said Friday night that Farley listed in critical condition.

Two other accidents occurred at same location at about the same time, Beach said.

First, a car that slowed down near Farley’s truck was rear-ended by another car, Beach said.

Then, about 10 minutes later, a pickup truck lost control at the same spot, veered off the road and rear-ended the same car that had been rear-ended earlier.

Beach said no one was injured in the subsequent accidents.

Rick Goodelll, a tow-truck driver at the scene, said the interstate between mile markers 142 and 144 is dangerous in the winter.

“I’ve been here for nine years now, and every year, every storm this little stretch right here is wicked popular,” he said.
