An elderly man was hit by a tractor trailer on South Main Street in Brewer Sunday evening.

Brewer Police tell WABI that around 5:30pm , 74 year old Don Factor, of Bangor, was crossing the street on his way to church when he was hit by a tractor trailer. Factor was seriously injured and transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center. State Police and Old Town reconstructionists were called to the scene to investigate how the accident happened. Police say neither alcohol nor speed was a factor in the accident.

“This is a very serious accident and it requires certain investigative steps,” said Brewer Police Department Lt. Chris Martin.

The road was closed for 4 and a half hours so that police could investigate. Late Sunday night the investigation was still ongoing. Factor is listed in critical condition.
