SEBAGO — The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department is urging motorcyclists to use caution after the department responded to a crash in Sebago today that left one rider injured.

Sheriff Kevin Joyce said that 56-year-old Harry Milton of Portland lost control of his bike on Douglas Mountain Road around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Joyce said the secondary road was covered with sand – from winter sanding operations – and likely contributed to the crash. Milton, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from his motorcycle and sustained a head injury along with abrasions. Milton did not need to be transported to the hospital, according to the Standish dispatch center.

Joyce said the accident should serve as a reminder to motorcyclists that secondary roads remain hazardous due to pot holes and sand left over from winter road cleaning operations.
