Two injured in Hancock ATV crash



HANCOCK — A Hancock man and a Lamoine woman were taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center after an all-terrain vehicle crash on B&B Drive in Hancock just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, Maine Game Warden Cpl. John MacDonald reported.

The driver, Eric Butters, 50, of Hancock, sustained serious injuries and was taken from the scene by LifeFlight to the Bangor hospital, MacDonald said.

A hospital spokesman said Thursday that Butters was listed in fair condition.

MacDonald said Pamela Jordan, 60, of Lamoine was also injured and was transported by ambulance to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth. Jordan was then transferred to EMMC.

“It has been determined that both were thrown from the ATV as it rolled,” MacDonald said. “The ATV is a maroon, 2018 Can-Am 650 Outlander four-wheel ATV.”

The investigation is ongoing while game wardens determine contributing factors that led to the crash, the corporal said.
