The woman seriously injured when her motorcycle was rear-ended by another vehicle in Lebanon on July 22 is out of the special care unit, and a Maine Medical Center spokesperson said today she was no longer at the hospital nor the hospital's nearby rehab facility.

Trooper John Darcy said today a mechanical failure was to blame for the crash and no charges were leveled against the car's driver.

He added that he'd learned the victim was also out of ICU recently.

The Lebanon Voice was able to contact the hospital to verify she wasn't there as her name was published on the Lebanon Fire-EMS Facebook page, however due to privacy concerns her name will not be released here.

The tragic accident occurred around 11:50 a.m. when, according to safety officials, witnesses said the 41-year-old motorcyclist was slowing to turn left onto Mills Road from Carl Broggi Highway in South Lebanon when the driver of a red car rear-ended her. She reportedly was not wearing a helmet.

The victim was transported by Lebanon Fire-EMS to Sanford where a Lifeflight took her to Maine Medical Center, where doctors put her on life support and into an induced coma. The woman's husband was quoted by Lebanon Fire and EMS as being off life support on July 24 but said she had sustained major brain damage.
