ALFRED — An Alfred man was treated for hypothermia after crashing his all-terrain vehicle late Saturday.

David Flaherty, 38, of Jordan Springs Road, left to visit a friend in Lyman at 4 p.m., riding on trails to get there, said Cpl. John MacDonald, of the Maine Warden Service.

Flaherty’s mother became concerned when he didn’t come home. She called the York County Sheriff’s Office at 9 p.m.

Authorities determined that Flaherty’s cellphone last sent out a signal near the area of Old Kennebunk Road in Lyman. Wardens and deputies started searching the trails and homes in the area and found Flaherty at 5:45 a.m. Sunday.

He had been in a crash but was awake. He said he had been lying in one position since midnight, and authorities determined he was hypothermic.

A warden and rescue workers transported Flaherty from the scene, because an ambulance could not get down the trail.
