Carroll Cummings, 69, was transported by Augusta Rescue to MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta, police said. Details on his condition were not immediately available from police.

The car was no longer on Cummings when public safety crews arrived, but he was still on the ground, Behr said. The incident was reported at approximately 9:15 a.m.
