BANGOR, Maine — A Saco woman was injured Sunday afternoon when the motorcycle she was driving collided with a tractor-trailer while she and a group of other riders were attempting to get onto Interstate 95 from Broadway, a Bangor police official said Sunday evening.
Kristen Dennison, 45, of Saco, whose injuries were not considered life-threatening, was taken to a local hospital for treatment, Bangor police Sgt. Kevin McLaren said.
McLaren said that Dennison was among a group of about 20 riders who were traveling north on Broadway when the group began heading toward the southbound onramp about 12:30 p.m.
Witnesses who were not part of the group indicated to police that as the riders began making the lefthand turn, they swung wide to the right and Dennison collided with the side of a northbound tractor-trailer owned by Hart Transportation that was traveling straight.
After bouncing off the truck, Dennison’s bike struck those driven by two other riders, Gregory Smith, 45, of New Vineyard and Griffin Segall, 49, of Lewiston, McLaren said. While both men complained of pain at the scene, neither required a trip to the hospital. Their motorcycles had minor damage and both were able to ride away.
