Man seriously injured after being pinned under vehicle



ELLSWORTH — A Surry man sustained life-threatening injuries after a single-vehicle crash on Buttermilk Road in Lamoine Tuesday night, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Lt. Tim Cote said Joshuah J. Murray, 26, was ejected from his car, which rolled onto its side, pinning the man under the vehicle.

“Witnesses were able to push the vehicle off of the operator prior to the arrival of emergency personnel,” said Cote.

Murray had been driving a 2005 Buick at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the car, which went off the right side of the road and hit a utility pole, Cote said. That collision ejected Murray from the car. The car then rolled, pinning Murray until help arrived.

Deputy Michael Southard is the primary investigating officer. He was assisted by Deputy Jeff McFarland and Deputy Brian Archer.

Maine State Police Sgt. Jeff Ingemi and Trooper Josh Lander also assisted as did the Lamoine Fire Department and County Ambulance.

No word on which hospital Murray was taken to.

The crash is still being investigated. McFarland is reconstructing the accident.
