OTISFIELD⁠—A man was seriously injured Monday evening after his pickup truck rolled over on Route 121 in Otisfield.

Oxford County Sheriff Deputy Chief James Urquhart said the man, identified as James R. Micklon, rolled his truck into the middle of the roadway blocking both lanes.

At the scene, Fire Chief Kyle Jordan said the man suffered “multi-system trauma” after the single-vehicle crash. Urquhart said Micklon was Lifeflighted to CMMC.

Although he did not see the crash, James Stricker, a volunteer EMT, said he was flagged down immediately after the accident. He said he attempted to apply pressure to the man’s wounds, but could not do much because the man was trapped inside the truck.

The crash occurred at about 6 p.m. in a residential area of Route 121, across from Thompson Lake and about 100 feet from the New Outpost restaurant.

The Otisfield Fire Department, Oxford Fire Department, and Casco Fire Department and Oxford County Sheriff’s Office responded to the accident.

While responding to the scene, the operation of  the Oxford Fire Engine 6 sideswiped a retaining a wall at 69 State Road 121. The fire truck sustained, minor damage, and a few patio blocks were displaced.
