A three-car crash on Route 2 in Canaan, a half hour outside of Bangor is being blamed on driver inattention on the part of a 70-year-old motorist.
Bangor car accident lawyers understand two people were transported to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries, while traffic on the highway was snarled for more than an hour. According to reports from The Bangor Daily News, the at-fault driver failed to notice or yield to a motorcyclist stopped in a construction zone.
The 62-year-old motorcyclist and his 55-year-old passenger were tossed into the rear of a boat trailer, being hauled by a 24-year-old pickup driver. The motorists were stopped in a line of traffic awaiting the go-ahead from a flagger working with the construction crew.
