AUGUSTA — A 58-year-old Oakland man was killed Saturday night when his motorcycle was involved in a crash with an SUV on Civic Center Drive in Augusta.

Patric Sherman died while riding his 2008 Yamaha, according to Deputy Chief Kevin Lully of the Augusta Police Department.

Sherman’s passenger on the motorcycle, Venise Thompson, 51, also of Oakland, was injured and taken to Maine Medical Center in Portland in serious-but-stable condition, according to Augusta police Sgt. Eric Lloyd.

The crash occurred at about 8:45 p.m. at the intersection of Civic Center Drive and Old Belgrade Road, according to police.

The Maine State Police reconstructed the crash Saturday night, and Augusta police were still investigating the incident Sunday, Lloyd said.

No charges had been filed as of Sunday afternoon, according to police.

Lloyd said the crash occurred as a 2018 Mitsubishi SUV driven by Eric Arbour, 23, of Augusta was turning left off Civic Center Drive, from the southbound lane, onto Old Belgrade Road, and the motorcyclist was traveling north on Civic Center Drive, toward Belgrade.

Neither Arbour nor his passenger, Karla Pleasant, 54, of Augusta was injured.

Officers asked Sunday that anyone with information about the crash call Augusta police.
