The car and motorcycle were both headed west on Route 25 in Gorham when the incident developed, with one vehicle passing then slowing down in front of the other, the sheriff's office said.

When the two slowed for a traffic light in Standish just before 12:30 p.m., the car pulled alongside the 1995 Harley-Davidson XLH and swerved into it, knocking the rider to the ground.

The motorcyclist, Alex Fazzi, 22, of Gorham, was treated for injuries by Standish rescue workers at the scene. The motorcycle was badly damaged.

A witness provided a partial license plate number, though it did not correspond to the car's description. Police also have a photo of the car in the distance but have yet to identify the driver, who is in his 30s, the sheriff's office said. The car should have damage to the front right quarter panel.

Police are describing the incident as an aggravated assault.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective John Fournier at 207-774-1444, ext. 2173.
