Jay woman killed in motorcycle crash

DIXFIELD – A Jay woman on her first motorcycle ride was killed Thursday night when she crashed her bike into an oncoming truck on Route 2.

Police said Victoria Flagg, 32, died from injuries suffered in the 7 p.m. crash. By late Thursday night, Dixfield police were continuing to investigate with the help of Maine State Police.

Dixfield police Sgt. Jeff Howe said Flagg was riding her motorcycle west ahead of another driven by her husband.

For reasons that remain unclear, Flagg lost control in an area where the road curves to the right. Her bike veered into the oncoming lane where it was struck by a heavy-duty pickup truck, Howe said.

The name of the truck driver was not immediately available.

Howe said there were no indications that speed played a role in the crash. Rider inexperience was suspected as a cause but the wreck remained under investigation.
