Presque Isle men arrested after weekend road rage incident

Two Presque Isle men have been arrested after an apparent road rage incident Saturday that seriously injured a pedestrian, according to a statement by Fort Fairfield police Chief Matthew Cummings.

18-year-old Noah Sirois and 19-year-old Landon MacDougal were arrested after allegedly driving at high speeds in Fort Fairfield, chasing other vehicles down side streets and getting into a verbal argument with others at a local convenience store. After the argument, the pair again drove off, and struck a pedestrian.

Cummings identified the man as Sean Wright, of Fort Fairfield, who was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor with life-threatening injuries. An update on Wright's condition was not available at this time.

Sirois and MacDougal are facing numerous charges, including elevated aggravated assault and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
