Guy Stevens, 68, was driving a 2007 Ford Focus south on the road just before 4:30 p.m. when the crash occurred, according Mike Mitchell, chief deputy of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

“Stevens, the lone occupant, was ejected from his vehicle,” Mitchell said. “He was transported by EMS to Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan and subsequently LifeFlighted to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor where he is being treated for injuries to include a possible fractured pelvis,” Mitchell said.

Stevens was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, he said.

The crash is being investigated, but excessive speed prior to the crash appears to have been a contributing factor, according to Mitchell.

“No charges are anticipated at this time,” he said.

Somerset County Sheriff’s Sgt. Mathew Cunningham and deputies Stephen Armiger and Allen-Michael Jones responded to the crash, according to Mitchell. He said four members of the Canaan Fire and Rescue Department assisted sheriff’s officials at the scene and four people from out of state who were staying at a nearby residence also helped.

“These four individuals had significant medical training to include being paramedics and treated Stevens before EMS arrived,” Mitchell said.
