Skateboarder seriously injured in Middleton


MIDDLETON - A 19-year-old was sent to the hospital for head and neck injuries after he fell from a skateboard Tuesday along Adams Way.


Police, firefighters and emergency personnel responded to 47 Adams Way at 8:20 p.m.


"He must have taken a real good fall," Police Chief Randy Sobel said. The man sustained contusions, but the head and neck injuries were the bigger concern, the chief said.


Sobel said firefighters requested a helicopter to transport the man, but weather prevented an air evacuation to Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Boston or Portland, Maine.


As a result, Sobel said a Middleton ambulance transported the man to Route 16 where it was met by paramedics from Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester.
