A Sullivan woman suffered serious injuries Sunday when she was struck by a truck and pinned against a wood splitter.

Eleanor Ritchie, 80, was struck by the truck as her husband, Clinton Ritchie, 86, was backing up the vehicle, said Hancock County Deputy Eric McLaughlin.

Clinton Ritchie was operating a 2001 Ford Ranger on his property when the accident occurred, McLaughlin said.

Eleanor Ritchie was taken by LifeFlight to Eastern Maine Medical Center, where she was listed in serious condition Tuesday, according to the Ellsworth American.
