Police Investigating Accident on Forest Ave in Orono 

Forest Avenue in Orono is closed Saturday night after a single car accident.

Orono police said a male and female were in a pickup truck when their car went off that road and hit a telephone pole.

The pole was broken in half and wires were on the roadway.

One person was taken to EMMC and the other taken to St Joseph Healthcare.

Orono Police Sgt. Scott Scripture said, “Right now were trying to establish the injuries and the protocol because we believe alcohol was a factor of this. Right now were trying to work with hydro to replace the power and phone company to get the poles up and open the road.”

Orono police are investigating the accident.

Officials said the road should reopen early Sunday morning.
