ANSON, Maine (AP) — Police say a Maine motorcyclist who spent almost 11 hours stranded in the woods following a crash has been found.

The Morning Sentinel reports 52-year-old David Gorey was found yelling for help before 7 a.m. Wednesday in Anson. Gorey was lying in the woods and was located by a couple that was taking a walk and then phoned police.

Police say Gorey was taken to a hospital in Skowhegan by ambulance and then taken by helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. Police say his injuries are serious but do not appear to be life-threatening.

Police say Gorey told them he went off the left side of the road while traveling east on his motorcycle at about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
