PALMYRA — A Litchfield man suffered a serious head injury in a collision with an SUV at the intersection of Routes 2 and 152 Saturday morning.

Kevin Pulk, 59, of Litchfield, was taken from the scene by ambulance to Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield then subsequently taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor for treatment of a serious head injury, according to a news release from Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said the investigation so far indicated Lisa Veazie, 61, of Scarborough, was driving a 2015 Honda CRV SUV heading north on Route 152, which is also known as Ell Hill Road. She stopped at the intersection of Routes 2 and 152 then allegedly pulled out in front of Pulk’s 1988 Honda Goldwing, which was headed east on Route 2.

Veazie was also taken to Sebasticook Valley Hospital, for a possible shoulder injury. A passenger in her vehicle was not injured.

Police said Pulk was not wearing a helmet, and that Veazie and her passenger were both wearing seatbelts.

The crash remains under investigation but police said initially it appeared neither alcohol nor speed contributed to the crash.


The crash was reported at 10:50 a.m.

Deputy Isaac Wacome responded to the crash, and was assisted by Sgt. Mathew Cunningham. The crash is being reconstructed by Maine State Police.

Also assisting the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office at the scene were Pittsfield Police, firefighters from Pittsfield, Hartland, Detroit and Clinton, as well as Redington Fairview General Hospital EMS from Skowhegan and Newport Ambulance.
