Morning Mishap on a Bangor Bridge
The caption of the post that Wendy Brown put up on social media this morning read "And I thought my day started out rough!"
Based on the picture she had posted with it, I'd say Brown pretty much nailed everyone's sentiment.
Brown was driving to her job as a Pre-School teacher from her home in Orrington around 6:45 Wednesday morning when she came upon the scene. She said once she realized that no one had been injured, she thought "Being 5 minutes late for work was not looking so bad."
Brown said a fire truck showed up as she was sitting on the off-ramp.
Sgt. Wade Betters of the Bangor Police Department says it was certainly an unusual situation.
"Powerful engine in a small car. The driver lost control for a moment ...No injuries...no charges."
I'm still not sure how this white Miata made its way up on the side of the Hammond Street Overpass. I am grateful it went no further than it did. People often shirk off the idea that something as simple as a quick distraction can lead to a dangerous situation. Thankfully everyone involved, including the car, seemed to escape the situation no worse for the wear.
Be careful out there.
