One man killed after crash on I-95 off-ramp in Bangor
The Exit 186 off-ramp is expected to be closed for the next several hours.
BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - One man has died following a crash in Bangor Saturday morning.
38-year-old James Rice of Bangor was killed in the crash.
Police were called to the I-95 northbound off-ramp near Exit 186 (near Stillwater) just before 9:30 a.m.
Maine State Police say that Rice never made the turn for the exit before driving into the woods, down an embankment, before striking a tree.
Fire officials say some witnesses made life saving efforts.
“There was a passerby who was a former EMT. He and some other bystanders attempted first aid, but there’s very little they could do due to the entrapment of the individual.”
Officials add that Rice was wearing a seatbelt and that there were no other occupants in the car.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
