Police have suspect in fatal Bangor hit-and-run

By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Police “located the suspect vehicle” involved in Saturday night’s fatal hit-and-run on Main Street, Lt. Tom Reagan said Sunday evening.

Reagan said the driver has been identified and is cooperating with investigators. The vehicle that police say hit the pedestrian is being processed at the Police Department, Reagan said, but he didn’t release any additional information about the vehicle.

The lieutenant said it’s unlikely that any further information, including the names of the driver and victim, would be released Sunday.

“The investigation is ongoing still,” Reagan said. “Future charges are possible.”

The Bangor Police Department’s criminal investigation division is working the case.

The accident happened just across the street from Saturday night’s Waterfront Concert featuring the Zac Brown Band. The show ended around 11:15 p.m., about 45 minutes after the vehicle struck the pedestrian.

Edwards said early Sunday that “there is no indication” that the victim was a concert patron.

On Sunday morning, Sgt. Paul Edwards said police were acting on information that a small or midsize white or light-colored sedan was traveling toward Bangor’s downtown on Main Street in the left-hand lane at the entrance to Shaw’s Supermarket when it struck the victim around 10:30 p.m.

Edwards said Sunday morning that police were looking for a vehicle that may have been damaged on its front end, hood or windshield.

Anyone who witnessed the accident and has information should call Bangor police at 947-7382. Callers can remain anonymous by pressing 6 to use the department’s tip line.

Detective Larry Morrill is lead investigator on the case, according to Edwards.
