Maine driver, 83, charged with hitting bicyclist

Police said an 83-year-old man whose driving privileges had been revoked has been charged after his minivan hit an 11-year-old bicyclist who was riding alongside a road. The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department said Milton Hill of Monmouth was driving on Bog Road about 9 a.m. Monday when he struck one of three boys who were riding together in single file on the edge of the pavement. Officials said the boy was taken by medical helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The sheriff’s department said Hill was charged because his license had been revoked this year due to a medical condition.
