Five Juveniles Injured in Linneus Crash
State Police say five young people were injured in a single-vehicle accident in southern Aroostook County late Friday night.
Maine State Troopers responded to the crash in Linneus at approximately 11:45 p.m, according to Trooper Chuck Michaud. The teenage driver lost control of a 2011 Chevy pick-up on the Drews Mills Road while turning onto Bates Hill Road, Michaud said. The truck went off the road, down an embankment, and rolled over.
The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle and sustained a serious foot/leg injury. Police said the four juvenile passengers in the pickup all sustained injuries that were not considered to be life threatening. They were transported by Houlton Ambulance to Houlton Regional Hospital.
Troopers Adam Bell and John Darcy and the Linneus Fire Department responded to the scene.
State Police say the driver was carrying passengers beyond the restrictions of an intermediate license. The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
