JAY — A man was seriously injured Sunday night when the pickup truck he was driving left East Jay Road and hit a tree, police Sgt. Russell Adams said Monday.

The man had received suspected broken bones and was taken by NorthStar EMS ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

Officer Dylan Rider is still investigating the accident and the name of the man who is believed to be from West Virginia and recently moved to Jay, Adams said.
