A Windsor man was continuing to recover Tuesday at a Lewiston hospital a day after suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle crash on Route 17 in Windsor.

Richard Glidden, 34, was in stable condition Monday night at Central Maine Medical Center, according to Capt. Daniel Davies of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office.

Hospital officials on Tuesday would not provide an update on Glidden’s condition, saying it was being kept private at the family’s request.

Glidden was taken by a LifeFlight helicopter to CMMC Monday morning with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries, Deputy Michael Bickford, of the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, said shortly after the crash.

Glidden, who was not wearing a helmet, was alone on the motorcycle, Bickford said.

The accident occurred shortly after 10 a.m. as Glidden drove a Kawasaki VM 800 west on Route 17, which is also Augusta-Rockland Road. Glidden lost control of the motorcycle near the Route 32 intersection and was thrown to the pavement.
