Suspect sought in Bangor hit-and-run

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Police are seeking information about a hit-and-run accident Thursday night in which a local woman was injured.

Arielle Ramsey, 19, was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center for treatment of knee and wrist injuries, Lt. Jeff Millard said Friday. She was released from the hospital later that night, he said.

The accident happened at 7:10 p.m. near the intersection of Stillwater and Forest avenues as Ramsey and a male pedestrian were walking from Forest Avenue across Stillwater Avenue, Millard said.

After crossing the street in front of an inbound car, Ramsey walked into the path of a red Toyota Camry that was traveling in the opposite direction, Millard said, citing an accident report.

The Camry, which was being driven by a female, did not stop after hitting Ramsey, Millard said. Though there were witnesses in the area, no one managed to get the car’s license plate number.

If located, the driver could be charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury, he said, adding that the Camry likely had front-end damage.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect can call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7385. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by pressing ext. 6.
