A Fairfield man suffered possible life-threatening injuries in a motorcycle crash Wednesday at the intersection of U.S. Route 2 and Ell Hill Road in Palmyra, police said.

Chad Wynne, 36, was driving east on U.S. Route 2 around 10:45 a.m. when his motorcycle was struck by a Ford Explorer driven by David Roundy, 75, of St. Albans, according to a news release from Chief Deputy James Ross, of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

The accident occurred after Roundy entered the intersection after he stopped at the stop sign, according to the release. The accident’s cause remains under investigation.

The Ell Hill intersection has been the site of numerous crashes over the years, according to the release.

Wynne, who was not wearing a helmet, was taken by ambulance to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. No information was available on Wynne’s condition, a hospital spokesman said later Wednesday.

The motorcycle, a 1999 FXDI Harley-Davidson, was destroyed in the crash. The Explorer sustained minor damage, the release said.

Speed and alcohol are not considered to be factors in the accident. Maine State Police and the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office also went to the scene.
