BRIDGTON — An 84-year-old local man was seriously injured when he was struck by a car while crossing Main Street early Monday evening, Police Chief Richard Stillman said Tuesday.

James Knox suffered two broken legs in the accident, according to investigating officer Joshua E. Muise. Knox was taken to Bridgton Hospital and transported by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. Muise said a family member told him Knox broke both legs and was scheduled for surgery Tuesday.

The incident was reported at 6:20 p.m. Monday, according to Police Department sources. The driver was identified as Janna Levesque of Bartlett, N.H., who was driving a 2004 Lexus west on Main Street when it struck Knox at Depot Street.

“It was a low-speed crash,” Muise said. “He was crossing the road, and she didn’t see him. He also said he didn’t see her.”

Muise said the accident remains under investigation.
