Equipment Malfunction Causes Motorcycle Crash

Maine State Police
Maine State Police

A falling kickstand caused a motorcycle accident that sent one man to the hospital on Monday.

State Police say the accident happened just after 5:00 Monday afternoon on the Hodgdon Mills Road in Hodgdon. 49-year-old Ronald DuPont of Linneus was driving his Honda Goldwing motorcycle when he lost control of it. The bike went off the right side of the road, into the ditch, and tumbled end-over-end. DuPont was thrown from the motorcycle. He called his wife, who took him to the emergency room at Houlton Regional Hospital. He was later taken by Life Flight to Eastern Maine Medical Center and treated for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

DuPont told police that he was testing the motorcycle when the kickstand fell down, causing the crash. He was not wearing a helmet and police say he didn’t have a motorcycle endorsement on his driver’s license.

The accident remains under investigation.
