ORONO – Tense moments for some drivers on the interstate in Orono Saturday afternoon.
Maine State Police responded near the Kelly Road on-ramp around 1:30 p.m. when two cars crashed after one failed to merge, sending one of the vehicles off the road and down to the tree line.
State Trooper Adam Gould stated “Heavy traffic played a role, merging from the Kelly Road onto the interstate. One vehicle tried to go around the other one and ended up losing control and hitting the other vehicle on the driver’s side.
Trooper Gould said there was a similar accident in the same exact place just a day before.
