B Crew responds to rollover

Woman injured in rollover accident on I-395 exit in Bangor

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A woman was injured Friday afternoon when she lost control of her van on an Interstate 395 ramp, according to police.

The woman, whose name was not immediately available, was believed to be in her mid-60s, State Police Trooper Forrest Simpson said at the scene.

The crash occurred around 2 p.m.

Simpson said the woman was exiting the eastbound lanes of I-395 at the Farm Road ramp when she failed to negotiate a corner, lost control and hit a tree.

The van rolled over onto the passenger side.

Simpson said the vehicle’s air bags deployed and the woman was wearing her safety belt, which likely prevented serious injury.

The trooper said the woman’s injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening, and she was taken from the scene by ambulance to an area hospital, though Simpson was not sure where the driver was being transported.

In addition to state police, Bangor fire and rescue responded to the accident. The Exit 3A ramp was closed for a short period of time while crews cleaned the scene up but has since reopened.

Members remembered on 9/11

On Thursday 9/11/14, members of Local 772 and our Honor Guard remembered not only those who were lost on 9/11/01, but two of our own.

On January 15th, 1914 Lt Walter Morrill and Firefighter John Leonard (Both of Hose Co#3) were killed while working at box 27 (Bangor Opera House). Today these members received a firefighters graveside service to honor their ultimate sacrifice. Members of the Morrill family were on hand, as well as members of the press, City of Bangor dignitaries and citizens.

This is a letter written by the wife of a Firefighter, asking the simple question, 'What is a Firefighter worth?' This letter is a must read, please take the time to read this letter and share it with everyone you know.
What is a firefighter worth? There has been so much talk recently about things like containing costs, lowering taxes, and those who work in public safety being overpaid - particularly firefighters - that it could make your head spin. We've all done the "simple math," crunched the numbers, and it all seems to boil down to a simple question. What are firefighters worth. Read More...
