Two women allegedly attempted to deceive investigators after a hit-and-run in Orland that seriously injured a local man.

Travis Allen was walking along Acadia Highway in Orland on Thursday afternoon. Hancock County officials say he was in the breakdown lane when he was struck by a passing vehicle. The 46-year-old was taken to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center with serious injuries.

The vehicle that hit Allen originally took off but was found not far from the crash site. According to WABI-TV, Patricia Bowen, 71 of Searsport, originally told Deputies with the Hancock County Sheriff's Office that she was driving when the crash happened. An investigation into the incident determined it was actually 31-year-old Brittany Gainer of Searsport that had been behind the wheel. Bowen is charged with obstructing government administration, falsifying physical evidence, and hindering apprehension or prosecution. Gainer is charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, failure to report an accident by quickest means, and obstructing government administration.

Both women were taken to the Hancock County Jail.
