An 18-year-old woman was taken by LifeFlight helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor Saturday night, Nov. 20, after suffering injuries that police believe were likely caused in a car accident.

Alicia Rose was transported to the hospital after the driver of the vehicle she was riding in called police to report that Rose was having a seizure. The driver, 22-year-old Tyson Servisky, of Searsport, also reported that his vehicle had left the road as a result of being distracted by his passenger’s medical condition. All of this occurred while Servisky was traveling on City Point Road, said Belfast Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham.

The report came in to police at 9:33 p.m.

Cunningham said Servisky was outside of his vehicle when officers arrived at the scene, but immediately stated that he was the driver.

Servisky claimed that Rose was having a seizure while she was a passenger in his vehicle, and he also stated that Rose had a history of having seizures.

Officers at the scene, however, noticed damage to the passenger’s side of the windshield. Cunningham said the damage was consistent with what a windshield might look like if a passenger had hit their head as a result of a car accident.

Rose was transported by LifeFlight to EMMC, and Cunningham said the most recent information police have on her condition is that she is being treated in the Intensive Care Unit.

Servisky was arrested on a charge of operating under the influence after police determined that his blood alcohol content was at .16 percent.

Servisky is scheduled to appear at Fifth District Court in Belfast Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011.
