Police in Bangor are releasing new information about a car accident that left one pedestrian dead Saturday night.
Officers were called to the parking lot of Hannaford Supermarket just before 8 pm.
Police say they found a dead body underneath a car, near the entrance of the store.
Officials tell us they later determined that the person was struck by the car somewhere along Vermont Avenue and was trapped underneath it, while the car continued to Union Street.
“The vehicle came to a rest in the parking lot of the Hannaford on Union Street which is where the driver of the vehicle realized that there was a person beneath the vehicle,” said Bangor Police Detective David Bushey.
Bushey says the driver was unaware that the person was trapped underneath the car until they reached Hannaford.
No charges are expected to be filed against the driver.
The case is being handled by the Bangor Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
He continued to say police have, “a pretty good understanding of what happened,” and expect to release more information soon.
