Police investigating Brewer Lake Road rollover

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

ORRINGTON, Maine — Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a rollover accident on the Brewer Lake Road on Sunday evening in which a sport utility vehicle was demolished.

Deputy Bill Gardner of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office said Monday morning the vehicle, a 1995 Jeep Cherokee, was on its roof when police arrived around 6 p.m.

Gardiner said the crash occurred near the Brewer-Orrington town line. He added the vehicle hit a utility pole and rolled over. No power lines were down at the scene.

The deputy said police believe two or three people occupied the vehicle, but only one man, who wasn’t seriously injured, remained on scene when officers arrived.

Police were able to find out who the Jeep was registered to, but Gardner said he wasn’t fully cooperating.

“The owner had not reported it stolen but was not surprised it wasn’t there,” said Gardner, who did not disclose the owner’s name.

The names of the occupants weren’t available either, the deputy said.

No charges have been filed in connection with the accident, which remains under investigation, Gardner said.

“We’re just investigating who was in the vehicle and what the circumstances were surrounding the accident,” Gardner explained.

Brewer Lake Road was closed for about 3 hours while crews cleaned up the wreckage, while residents in the area were without electricity for up to four hours.
