Pedestrian struck in Bangor accident

BANGOR – An accident on Sunday morning in Bangor where a vehicle struck a pedestrian put a person in the hospital.

At approximately 8:20 a.m on the morning of Sept. 1, Bangor Police and Fire Departments responded to a report of a crash on Hammond Street in the vicinity of Court Street. Upon arrival, officers discovered that a female pedestrian had been struck by a small Subaru SUV, driven by 31-year-old Brian Hodgins of Bangor, and had received significant injuries. The pedestrian, 61-year-old Irene Larrabee of Bangor, was transported to Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment.

This incident was investigated by reconstructionists and detectives of the Bangor Police Department. Hammond Street from Ohio to Court Street was closed while that aspect of the investigation was conducted.

The rest of the investigation remains ongoing; as of press time, no charges had been filed.

Escaped bull injures men in Madison

MADISON (AP) — A Maine sheriff’s department says a 57-year-old man and his 83-year-old father-in-law were injured by a bull that had escaped an enclosure in Madison and gored them.

WMTW-TV reports Ronald McEwen and father-in-law Robert Neal both suffered serious gore wounds in the Friday attack.

The men were trying to capture the bull after it got loose at McEwen’s farm on Horsetail Hill Road in Madison when it charged them.

Police say McEwen shot and killed the bull before it could cause further injury.

Neal was flown to the Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor where he was being treated for serious wounds to his arm and leg. McEwen was gored in the face and leg. He was taken to the Redington-Fairview General Hospital in Skowhegan.

Child responsible for barn fire

UNITY (AP) — The Maine Fire Marshal’s Office says a child under the age of 10 is responsible for starting a fire that destroyed a barn and damaged nearby buildings.

Sgt. Joel Davis of the office said Thursday the boy will not be charged and will be referred to a juvenile fire-setter prevention program.

Unity fire Chief Blaine Parsons said the fire Monday damaged an adjacent mobile home and vinyl siding on two garages. It also caused spot fires across the road.

The Kennebec Journal reports that Davis would not say if the boy is related to those who live in the mobile home.

Mother-son back-to-back OUI

GARDINER (AP) — A Maine mother and son were both charged with operating under the influence within three hours of one another.

The Kennebec Journal reports 19-year-old Zachary Reed, of Wiscasset, was pulled over by Gardiner police Saturday and arrested. He was held on $300 bail.

His mother, 50-year-old Marci Reed, also of Wiscasset, was picking him up from the police station hours later when officers say they smelled liquor on her breath.

Police reports show Marci Reed’s blood-alcohol content was under the legal limit for driving, but police still believed she was too impaired by alcohol to drive.

Marci Reed told officers she had been drinking coffee brandy.

Both Reeds were later released to a family member. It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers and a possible phone number wasn’t working.

Tip leads to arrest

THOMASTON (AP) — Police say a New York woman tipped off police that a man might be targeting a Walmart in Maine, prompting the temporary evacuation of the store in Thomaston last week.

Police say they seized an assault rifle from the Rockport home where 25-year-old Jeremy Hugh Rogers was staying. Elizabeth Hart of the Thomaston Police Department told the Bangor Daily News that Rogers “was prepared for something.”

Rogers, of Norwalk, Connecticut, is charged with terrorizing, terrorizing with a weapon and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.

Rogers was detained on $50,000 bail at the Knox County Jail. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer and a phone number for him could not be found.

The charges against Rogers come weeks after a gunman killed 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
