RICHMOND – A Brunswick man was injured and taken by LifeFlight of Maine helicopter to a local hospital after he was struck by a truck while riding his bike Thursday morning through an intersection.

Taber Newton was being treated for a possible head injury and at least one broken arm after the crash, officials said.

The incident took place at 10:07 a.m., after Shirley Palmer, of Sabattus, ran a red light at the intersection of Lancaster and Brunswick roads and hit Newton, police said.

Newton was one of “several bikes riding” at the time, said Chief Deputy Brett Strout of the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office.

Palmer has been charged with causing serious bodily injury while his license was suspended.

He was driving a 2021 Toyota Tacoma and Strout said there is “no reason to suspect” Palmer was under the influence.

The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office was the first to arrive on the scene, but the Richmond Police Department took over the case, which remains under investigation.
