    DEXTER — A head-on collision involving a sedan and motorcycle on Route 94 in Dexter Saturday afternoon seriously injured a Glenburn man, according to Dexter Police Chief Kevin Wintle.

    A Celica sedan operated by Jason Robinson, 25, of Dexter was traveling west on Route 94 near Jennings Hill Road when he collided with a 2013 Honda motorcycle driven by 60-year-old George Halloran of Glenburn. The impact threw Halloran from the bike “into the windshield on the passenger’s side of the Celica,” Wintle said. Halloran, who suffered arm and head injuries, was not wearing a helmet. He was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, said the chief.
    The tentative cause of the accident is driver inattention, Wintle said. “The car appeared to have drifted over the center line, but he was also driving right into the sun that time of day,” said the chief. No charges have been filed, but the accident is still under investigation, Wintle added.
    Allen Drew of the Dexter Police Department was the first officer at the scene, and he was assisted by Game Warden Josh Tibbetts and Wintle.
