AUGUSTA — An Augusta woman was taken to a Lewiston hospital Tuesday after crashing her motorcycle on Eastern Avenue.
Jennifer Doherty, 26, was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center with what were believed to be non life-threatening injuries, said Augusta Police Sgt. Christopher Shaw. A LifeFlight of Maine helicopter was unable to respond.
Doherty was driving her Suzuki 650 east on Eastern Avenue around 7 p.m., when she attempted to turn left onto Cony Road, Shaw said. Doherty lost control of the bike, which hit a curb and tossed her to the pavement, Shaw said.
The motorcycle remained upright and wound up in a field. Driver inexperience may have been a factor in the crash, Shaw said.
