JAY — A Livermore teenager was thrown through the rear window of a car legally parked beside East Dixfield Road on Monday when his off-road dirt bike struck it, police Sgt. Russell Adams said.

Garrett Benedix, 16, received a broken arm and facial injuries and was transported by NorthStar EMS ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

Benedix was wearing a helmet and traveling east on the road, also known as Route 17, toward My Dad’s Place when the accident occurred about 6 p.m.

The 2007 Toyota Corolla is owned by Cynthia Magoon of Jay, Adams said.

The accident remains under investigation, he said.

Jay Fire Rescue Department and officer Dylan Rider assisted at the scene.
