A 19-year-old man was killed Saturday night when his dirt bike collided head-on with a compact car in Dexter, police said.

Dexter Police Chief Kevin Wintle said the man was operating a 2007 Honda dirt bike on Route 23 in Dexter and headed in the direction of Ripley when his bike crossed into the path of an oncoming Dodge Neon, according to WLBZ-TV in Bangor, a sister station of WCSH-TV in Portland.

There were three people in the car. Two of those occupants – both female – were taken to Mayo Regional Hospital in Dover-Foxcroft, where they were treated and released.

Wintle said the dirt bike rider did not have a headlight on his bike but was wearing a helmet. He died at the scene. The accident took place around 10 p.m.

Police are withholding the name of the rider pending notification of his relatives.
