Glenburn Man Taken To EMMC By LifeFlight After Bradford Accident
Just before 1 Friday afternoon, 24-year-old Brett Vigue of Glenburn, was following another vehicle when he lost control of his truck in Bradford.”It was a vehicle that was traveling down Lagrange Road, lost control due to the black ice on the road, went off into the ditch, and struck a large tree. The stretch where all the black ice was is shaded by the trees. The sun wasn’t able to melt the ice from the road. The homeowner that lives across the street is an RN and she immediately came out and rendered aid until an ambulance arrived,” said Sergeant William Sheehan of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department.Multiple fire departments were on scene.”The fire department used their jaws to help extricate him from the vehicle,” said Sheehan.LifeFlight arrived and transported Vigue to Eastern Maine Medical Center where he is in critical condition.The sheriff’s department is still investigating the accident. They say drivers need to be careful while driving this time of year.”The frost heaves are really starting to come out, especially with the warm afternoons. There’s melting snow that’s on the road and it freezes and thaws out again, so you never know what’s around the corner, so you need to drive with caution,” said Sheehan.
