DOVER-FOXCROFT — A 17-year-old Sebec boy received head injuries in a car accident Sunday on Route 16 in Sebec.
John Ogden was taken to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft, was treated and released, according to Sgt. Larry Bickford of the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department.
Bickford said the accident was under investigation. He said Ogden was traveling to Milo when he lost control of his vehicle and it went into the ditch.
Speed was a factor in the 5 p.m. accident, Bickford said. He said Ogden was not wearing a seat belt. Ogden’s 1986 Chevrolet was considered a total loss.
Assisting Bickford at the scene were Chief Deputy Dale Clukey and Trooper Dan Ouellette of the Maine State Police.
