THOMASTON — A 12-year-old boy was injured Wednesday afternoon, June 1, after he collided with a car on Main Street.

The boy was taken by ambulance to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. Thomaston Police Sgt. Chris Hansen said the boy suffered some abrasions and had braces on his elbows and knees but otherwise escaped without serious injuries.

The boy was riding his bicycle north in the southbound side of Main Street and attempted to dart across the street near Hall Funeral Home. His bicycle struck a northbound car and bounced off the fender of the vehicle, with the boy landing on the yellow line in the road, Sgt. Hansen said.

The driver of the vehicle was not at fault, but said he was shaken up by the incident.

The crash occurred at about 4:15 p.m.
