NORWAY — A Norway man suffered broken bones in one of his feet after crashing his motorcycle into the rear bumper of a vehicle Tuesday afternoon on Waterford Road, according to Norway Police Officer Mitch Shaw.
Shaw said that Michael Walker, 25, of Norway was driving west on Waterford Road and attempting to make a left turn onto Ashton Road when Ryan Dillingham, 33, also of Norway, struck the rear bumper of his Subaru Impreza with his motorcycle.
Shaw said that Dillingham was “either following too closely to the Subaru, or did not realize the Subaru was making a left turn.”
Dillingham and his passenger were not taken to the hospital following the accident, but Shaw said Dillingham went to the hospital later in the day and learned he had broken bones in the foot that struck the vehicle.
Neither vehicle was towed and no charges were filed, Shaw said.
