One driver, two accidents

FRANKLIN – A Stonington man is in the hospital after a pair of accidents over the weekend.

At just after 7 p.m. on Aug. 17, 18-year-old Jared Murphy of Stonington was traveling east on Rt. 182 in Hancock in a white 2000 Dodge Dakota when he attempted to pass. The other driver was 52-year-old Julie Schaul of Chicago, Illinois who was operating a 2007 Subaru Forrester.

As Murphy started to pass, he pulled back abruptly to avoid a vehicle traveling westbound and struck Schaul’s vehicle; the impact sent Schaul’s vehicle off the road down a driveway into a parked vehicle.

Murphy failed to stop at the scene and continued on into Franklin. Approximately five miles away from the scene of the first incident, Murphy lost control of his vehicle and left the roadway. The truck wound up going into a field and rolling over several times; Murphy was ejected from the vehicle.

Murphy was transported by Capital Ambulance to Northern Lights Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for potentially life-threatening injuries.

Schaul and her juvenile daughter were treated at the scene and released.

The Hancock County Sheriff's Department was assisted at the two scenes by the Franklin Fire Department, Hancock Fire Department, Sullivan Fire Department and Capital Ambulance.

Reconstruction of the accident was handled by Deputy Jeff McFarland; Deputy Dakota Dupuis, Deputy Dan Harlan and Lt. Corey Bagley are involved in the investigation

BANGOR – Arrests have been made following an incident that took place on the Bangor waterfront last week.

At approximately 8 p.m. on the evening of July 31, officers responded to the area of Front and Railroad Street for an assault complaint. A local man – a transient – reported having just been attacked by two male suspects as he was making repairs to a bicycle.

As a result of this complaint, 18-year-old Liam Geagan of Brewer was arrested and charged with Assault class-D. Also charged was 19-year-old Benjamin Gilliland of Bangor.

Bangor PD seeks vandals

BANGOR – Officials from the Bangor PD are asking people for help in identifying the perpetrator(s) of recent acts of vandalism.

Over the past several days, Bangor PD has been investigating what appear to be random acts of vandalism. Officers believe more than one person is responsible for the actions, consisting of breaking several windows around the city. The suspects are using projectiles to break car windows along with the windows of private residences and some businesses as well.

Early indications are that one of the vehicles possibly related to the investigation is maroon/red colored SUV that appears to be a GMC (possibly an Envoy).

Spilled milk

FALMOUTH – There wasn’t any use crying about it, but there sure was a lot of spilled milk on the highway in Falmouth recently.

According to State Police, a tanker truck hauling milk overturned as it was exiting the Maine Turnpike in Falmouth on the afternoon of June 27. The wreck blocked the southbound exit that leads to the Falmouth Spur at mile 52. That exit was closed for a stretch, but the northbound exit was not affected.

State Police Corporal Fern Cloutier said the tractor trailer, owned by Clarks Milk Transport of Canaan, was traveling too fast on the exit, collided with the median guardrail, overturned and came to rest on its side.

The truck was driven by 21-year-old Ian Chadbourne of Palmyra who was taken to Maine Medical Center with minor injuries. The tanker had over 6,000 gallons of milk contained within; approximately half was spilled. The rest of the cargo was pumped out. The milk had come from a farm in Sabattus and was headed to the Oakhurst plant in Portland.

Assisting troopers were Maine Turnpike personnel and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. No other vehicles were involved.

Moose mayhem in Dover-Foxcroft

DOVER-FOXCROFT (AP) — Police say a moose smashed through the window of a vacant pizzeria in Dover-Foxcroft.

Piscataquis County corrections officer Matt Poole snapped a photo of the moose stepping through broken glass onto East Main Street early Friday in Dover-Foxcroft.

The Dover-Foxcroft Police Department posted on Facebook, “We found the suspect and they are not in custody. Boring right?”

Maine has plenty of moose, and sometimes they wander into towns. But Police Chief Ryan Reardon said it was first time in 26 years he’d seen one run into a building.

State biologists estimate Maine’s moose population is between 50,000 and 70,000.
