A Glenburn man was critically injured Thursday when his van rolled over on Interstate 95 in Sidney.

Christopher Galvin, 44, was taken initially by ambulance to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, but taken later by LifeFlight helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with serious injuries, said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. Galvin was in critical condition Friday afternoon, McCausland said.

The crash occurred shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday as Galvin drove his 2002 Chevrolet Venture south on Interstate 95. Galvin lost control of the van near mile 116, where the van left the road and struck rock ledges, McCausland said. The van overturned and came to rest on its roof.

Galvin, who was alone inside, had to be cut free from the van, he said.

That section of the interstate was closed for about 90 minutes while troopers investigated the crash.
