Saint David man in critical condition following snowmobile accident
MADAWASKA, Maine — A Saint David man is currently being treated at a Bangor hospital for serious injuries suffered in a snowmobile crash Wednesday night in Madawaska.
Luke Beaulieu, 57, of Saint David, was riding his 2006 Arctic Cat off the Gagnon Road in Madawaska when he collided with a tree at about 11 p.m., according to the Maine Warden Service, which is investigating.
Beaulieu suffered serious injuries when he was thrown from the snowmobile, according to Cpl. John MacDonald of the warden service.
Rescue personnel first transported Beaulieu to Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent, but then transferred him to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor where he remains in critical condition.
Wardens reported that speed and alcohol are likely contributing factors.
