NEW SHARON — A local man was injured Thursday night when the car he was driving went off Starks Road, rolled over and struck a tree, according to Franklin County Sgt. Matthew Brann.

Jaakob Lundy, 19, of New Sharon was pinned in the car after it rolled onto its side with its roof against a tree.

“Jaakob was traveling too fast for the road conditions,” Brann wrote in a report to Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr.

Lundy was not wearing a seat belt and received a possible head injury, Brann wrote.

Deputy Derrick Doucette issued Lundy a summons on a charge of operating under the influence.

Brann and Doucette were parked at the Sandy River Supply store on Routes 2 and 27 when county dispatchers alerted them to the crash. The New Sharon fire chief reported the accident after someone went to his home to tell him.

Deputies found Lundy pinned in a 2000 Honda Accord.

Lundy was helped out of the vehicle by members of the New Sharon Fire Department and placed on a backboard, Brann wrote. He was taken by a NorthStar EMS ambulance to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington. He was later taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, according to a FMH spokeswoman.

His family has asked that no information be released, a CMMC spokeswoman said Friday.
