Thomaston — A 28-year-old Camden man is reportedly in the Intensive Care Unit at Eastern Maine Medical Center after a motorcycle crash around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1.

An initial email from Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison indicated Clark was speeding and was not wearing a helmet. Dennison confirmed that the crash was a single-vehicle accident.
On Friday, August 3 Dennison confirmed that Sgt. Michael Sprague was parked on Route 1 in Warren when Clark's motorcycle passed him traveling at a "high rate of speed." Dennison said Sprague attempted to stop Clark with his lights and sirens on before Clark got into Thomaston.
Sgt. Sprague is investigating the accident and the Maine State Police are assisting with the reconstruction of the accident, according to information provided by Dennison.
On Monday, August 6 around 1 p.m. Clark remained in critical condition at EMMC.
