DIXFIELD — A local man and a teen were seriously injured Monday when their ATV went airborne and struck a tree beside Averill Hill Road, Maine Warden Service spokesman Cpl. John MacDonald said.

Maynard Touchette, 50, and a 16-year-old, whose name is not being released at this time, were riding a side-by-side ATV when the accident occurred, MacDonald said.

Touchette was taken to Rumford Hospital and then flown to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. A nursing supervisor said Tuesday evening that she had no information on him.

The teenager was treated at Rumford Hospital, MacDonald said.
