AUBURN — A motorcycle crash on Turner Road left two individuals with serious injuries on April 27, according to Auburn Police.

At about 1:15 p.m., emergency responders from the Auburn Police Department and the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department rushed to the scene near 2382 Turner Road following reports of a multi-vehicle collision.

The accident involved a late model Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by Ronald Hill, 62, of Oxford, with passenger Phyllis Shehan, 67, of South Paris.

Their motorcycle collided with a 2019 Honda CRV operated by Elizebeth Nicolazzo, 32, of Auburn.

Following the initial collision, the motorcycle continued out of control across the center line, striking a 2022 Honda CRV driven by Jayne Lepage, 79, of Turner.

Hill and Shehan were thrown from the motorcycle and sustained serious injuries.

Nicolazzo and Lepage, the drivers of the two CRVs, were reported uninjured.

Authorities have stated that the collision occurred when Hill made a sudden lane change to avoid an unidentified vehicle that had pulled out in front of him.

The involvement of the unidentified vehicle in the incident has been confirmed, as the vehicle’s operator has come forward and is cooperating with the ongoing investigation.

Turner Road was closed temporarily to facilitate the emergency response and investigation, with detours and commercial vehicle rerouting in place until the road was reopened at 5:15 p.m.

The Auburn Police Department, with assistance from the Lewiston Police Department, is reconstructing the crash as part of their investigation to determine the exact cause and circumstances.
