BANGOR – Police in Bangor say a pedestrian was seriously injured after getting hit by a car Tuesday evening.
The accident happened on Summer Street around 5 p.m., just down the road from the police station, police said.
Police said the vehicle was traveling south on Summer Street when the person was hit.
It was not immediately clear if the pedestrian was in a crosswalk when the accident took place.
“That’s one of the things that we’ll be looking into,” said Bangor Police Sgt. Wade Betters. “That’s also one of the jobs the criminal investigation division will do, and the reconstruction team will find out exactly how fast the vehicle was going and where the person was when the impact took place.”
The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
A portion of the road was expected to be shut down for a couple hours as authorities reconstructed the scene.
The crash remains under investigation.
