Police say a man suffered lacerations Sunday when his powered parachute became tangled in a tree in the Litchfield area.
According to the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, 66-year-old Litchfield resident John Beganny was flying the fan-powered parachute above the city around 1:40 p.m. Investigators say his flight path dipped over Libby Road, between Huntington Hill Road and Hallowell Road.
He struck an oak tree and fell, but caught himself on a branch more than 70 feet off the ground. Firefighters from Gardiner used a ladder truck to retrieve Mr. Beganny and paramedics took him to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Seeing a copy of the Maine accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Maine Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.

The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
