With all the snowbanks we have and the lighting at this time of year, it’s very difficult for pedestrians to be seen that are out shoveling, snowblowing or even getting mail and crossing the road.&quot:This accident is still under investigation.Just weeks ago, a woman from Bangor was hit by a plow truck while crossing the road. She later died.
