Valcort had to be removed from the car by the jaws of life. He did sustain serious injuries and was transported by Life Flight to Eastern Maine Medical Center. Power was out in the area for about 2 hours. Speed was not a factor but Rene Valcort was not wearing a seatbelt. The investigation is ongoing.
