The Androscoggin County Sheriff's Department said Milton Hill of Monmouth was driving on Bog Road about 9 a.m. Monday when he struck one of three boys who were riding along the road.

LEEDS, Maine (AP) _ Police say an 83-year-old man whose driving privileges had been revoked has been charged after his minivan hit an 11-year-old bicyclist who was riding alongside a road in Leeds, Maine.

The Androscoggin County Sheriff's Department said Milton Hill of Monmouth was driving on Bog Road about 9 a.m. Monday when he struck one of three boys who were riding together in single file on the edge of the pavement.

Officials say the boy was taken by medical helicopter to Maine Medical Center in Portland with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The sheriff's department says Hill was charged because his license was revoked earlier this year due to a medical condition. The accident is under investigation.
