BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor Fire Department ambulance en route to a call early Tuesday morning ran into a utility pole, and the accident is under investigation, the interim fire chief said Wednesday.
Chandler Doody-Corriveau, 24, was driving the emergency rig with paramedic Jeremiah Titus, 32, as his passenger when the low-speed crash occurred, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said.
“They were going to a call and looking for a house on Third and Union [streets] and he became distracted while looking for the house and hit a pole,” the sergeant said.
Nobody was injured in the crash and the amount of damage was not available, Edwards said. The front end of the ambulance was crumpled. It was towed away by a Bangor wrecker company from the Main Street fire station Wednesday morning.
“There was a little mishap and it is under internal investigation at this time,” Assistant Bangor Fire Chief Rick Cheverie, who is serving as the interim chief, said Wednesday. “This was a minor accident.”
