A man whose car struck the back of a motorcycle in Cornish is now facing charges.

Was Anyone Hurt?

It was 9:00 Sunday night when first responders were called to a car vs motorcycle crash on Route 25 in Cornish, near the Limington line. When they arrived, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss says they found the motorcycle's rider, Justin Bickford, 47, of Cornish with serious injuries. He was transported via LifeFlight to Maine Medical Center for treatment.

How Did the Crash Happen?

An initial investigation of the crash indicates that Bickford, who was riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle, was stopping to make a left-hand turn when his bike was struck by a green Toyota Prius, driven by Stowell Watters, 38, of Limington. Officials say it appears that the Prius did not slow down and ran directly into the back of the bike, causing the rider to be ejected. Bickford was wearing a helmet.

What are the Charges?

As a result of the investigation, Watters was arrested and taken to the York County Jail, where he was charged with aggravated driving to endanger and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon. Police say additional charges may be pending.

This case remains under investigation.
