BREWER, Maine — A state police trooper and an elderly Brewer man were injured Wednesday in a collision on North Main Street, officials said.

Trooper Darren Vittum was traveling to Bradley for a domestic violence call at the time of the crash, Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

Arthur Sites, 91, was attempting to pull out of Parkway North when he apparently pulled into the path of Vittum’s cruiser, which had its lights and sirens activated, McCausland said.

The trooper swerved but struck Sites’ car in the front driver’s side before coming to rest against a utility pole, McCausland said.

Sites suffered a broken hip while Vittum suffered bumps and bruises, McCausland said. Other troopers responded to the call in Bradley, and a woman was taken into custody for evaluation, McCausland said.

The utility pole did not break.
