YORK – A Sabattus man was seriously hurt when the car he was driving crashed into a moose on the Maine Turnpike tonight.

State police said the accident occurred in the turnpike’s northbound lanes near mile marker 10 about 7 p.m.

The moose crashed through the windshield of the car driven by Keith Hanson, 50. Hanson was seriously injured and taken to York Hospital but was expected to be airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland, said Cpl. Jerry Carr.

Hanson’s wife, Lori, suffered injuries to her face and hands and was treated at York Hospital. The couple’s 7-year-old daughter was also in the car and was unhurt.

The car, a four-door Buick sedan, was totaled, Carr said.
