A pedestrian was seriously injured after he was hit by a car on Summer Street outside the Bangor Police Department on Tuesday evening.

The pedestrian, 61-year-old Peter McIntosh of Bangor, was trying to cross the road when the crash occurred, according to the Bangor Police Department. He was taken to a local hospital for emergency medical treatment. The police department described his injuries as “very serious.”

The car was driven by Philip Perkins, 74, of Hampden.

The city’s police and fire departments arrived on the scene at about 5 p.m. Soon after, the fire department closed off Summer Street to traffic.

“He had very serious injuries and as quickly as possible was taken to a local medical care facility for emergency treatment,” said Sgt. Wade Betters of the Bangor Police Department.

The Bangor Police Department’s criminal investigation division and accident reconstruction team are looking into the crash. Police said Wednesday afternoon that no charges had been filed and that the investigation will take more time.
