A Wayne teenager is being treated for life-threatening injuries after a car crash Thursday night in Fayette.

Colin Liscord, 16, was listed in critical condition Friday at Maine Medical Center in Portland, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Liscord was a passenger in a Subaru sedan that crashed Thursday evening on Lovejoy Pond Road in Fayette. Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland on Friday identified Liscord as the injured passenger, but wouldn’t identify the driver, who police say is a teenage boy from the area.

“There has been no final decision on whether charges may be lodged against the driver,” McCausland wrote in an email Friday. “The investigation has not been completed.”

Liscord attends Maranacook Community High School in Readfield, according to Kennebec Journal reports. He attended Kents Hill School last year.

The two boys were hurt when the car apparently went off the road and sideswiped a tree about 5 p.m.

Maine State Police Trooper John York said after the crash that the passenger, later identified as Liscord, suffered serious injuries. He was taken to Central Maine Medical Center by Winthrop Ambulance and later transferred to Portland.

The driver of the Subaru was cleared by paramedics at the scene, York said.

Initially, York said the boys were apparently leaving a rehearsal for “Grease,” which will be performed in November by Maranacook Community High School. He said both boys were wearing seat belts.

Maine State Police reconstructed the crash.

“Nothing appears out of the ordinary,” York said Thursday. “We’re trying to figure out what led to the distraction that caused the loss of control.”

The road had to be closed while police reconstructed the crash.
