State Police say Medical Emergency Caused 3 Car Crash on I-95
State Police say a medical emergency caused an accident, involving three cars, on the interstate late Monday afternoon. They believe a driver heading north near mile marker 180 suffered either a stroke or heart attack around 3:30 pm. The driver’s silver Chevy SUV collided with a GMC truck. The truck ended up in the median. The Chevy continued moving into the southbound lane, struck another vehicle, and then came to a rest on the side of the road. Traffic was backed up for about 2 miles. The driver was taken by Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. His name is not being released, nor his condition. The other two drivers were not seriously hurt. Traffic was brought down to one lane for over an hour while crews cleared the scene. State Police were assisted by Bangor Fire and Rescue, as well as Hermon Fire and Rescue. Trooper Michael Johnston also noted that a concerned couple stopped to help load the Chevy driver into an ambulance. The crash is still under investigation.
