Waldoboro — A Knox man was taken by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston with injuries to his head following a crash with a pickup truck July 2 in Waldoboro.

Dean Barlow, 45, was traveling south on Route 220 on his Honda motorcycle when he collided with a pickup truck that was hauling a trailer west on Old Augusta Road, according to Waldoboro Police Officer Chris Spear.

The crash occurred in the middle of the intersection, where safety mirrors had recently been placed due to the deceptive nature of the road.

Spear said Barlow was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

The single occupant of the truck, Chase Macioch, 29, of Warren, was not injured in the incident.

Sagadahoc County Sheriff's Office was on the scene reconstructing the crash, and Spear said a blood test will be conducted on both drivers involved, as required by state protocol.

Another cyclist traveling with Barlow was not involved in the incident.

Waldoboro Fire and EMS responded to the scene, and were assisted in redirecting traffic by Warren, Jefferson, and Washington fire departments.

In a followup conversation July 3, Spear said the scene was cleared by 12:15 p.m. and the investigation in ongoing.
