Man Stopped by Witnesses after Allegedly Hitting 5 Cars in Bangor
A Levant driver is facing multiple charges after allegedly hitting five cars in Bangor over the weekend.
How Were the Police Alerted?
Bangor Police received a report of an erratic driver at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Saturday near the intersection of Main and State Streets. Sergeant Jason McAmbley tells us that by the time officers caught up to Brent Clark, 51 of Levant, he was on Broadway, being restrained by two other people.
Where Did the Crashes Happen?
An investigation into the incident revealed that Clark's vehicle had allegedly collided with five others. Two of the vehicles he allegedly hit were parked, while the other three were traveling on the road. All of the vehicles struck were located between the Broadway intersections with Somerset and Cumberland Streets. The two people that were holding Clark at the time officers arrived on the scene were the drivers from the last two vehicles he hit.
What Charges Does Clark Face?
When police officers tried to take Clark into custody, he resisted. During that struggle, McAmbley says Clark suffered an overdose and was revived with Narcan by Bangor rescue personnel. He was transported to the hospital, where he was treated and released. Clark was then taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with:
- Operating under the influence
- Reckless conduct
- Unlawful possession of scheduled drugs
- Refusing to submit to arrest
- Failure to notify the owner of property damage accident
- Driving to endanger
Several of the vehicles involved in the incident were towed from the scene. No serious injuries were reported.
