An accident has closed a portion of Broadway in Bangor and Police are advising motorists to avoid the area.

WABI-TV reports that the accident involves a scooter and a vehicle at the intersection with Grandview Avenue. A Bangor Police dispatcher told us that Broadway is closed from Hobart Street to Husson Avenue. Motorists are advised to avoid the area, if possible, until that scene can be cleaned up.

Traffic headed out Broadway should take Husson Avenue. Inbound traffic will want to turn off at the intersection with Griffin and Burleigh Roads.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
