A pedestrian who was seriously injured on Friday afternoon after a dump truck collided into her has been identified.
Jacqueline Capitina, 66, of Addison was hit by a dump truck driven by Jerry Lavertu, 60, of Clifton as he was turning from Buck Street onto Main Street, according to Sgt. Wade Betters of the Bangor Police Department.
Capitina suffered serious injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency medical treatment, Betters said.
Capitina was in fair condition at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center on Monday evening, according to hospital spokesperson Andrew Soucier. She was conscious and her vital signs were stable, though she “may be uncomfortable,” Soucier said.
The collision took place as the Maine Democratic Party’s convention was getting underway at the Cross Insurance Center, at the intersection of Buck and Main streets.
Capitina is listed vice chair of the Addison Democratic Committee on the state party’s website.
Lavertu was cooperative with investigators, Betters said, and no charges have been issued.
