Maine State Police say no one was hurt in two crashes Tuesday afternoon on I-95 near the Broadway exit.

What Happened?

Maine State Police asked drivers to avoid the area of the Broadway Exit of I-95 at approximately 5:30 Tuesday afternoon, while Troopers dealt with 'several crashes.' This morning, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Shannon Moss told us the incidents began as a State Trooper dealt with a pedestrian on the interstate, and had their blue lights activated. Traffic began backing up, as the Trooper worked to resolve the situation, and that's when two separate rear-end crashes occurred.

Moss says in each case, there were 3 vehicles involved in the chain-reaction crashes. No one was hurt but vehicles were damaged, prompting delays while the roadway was cleared. The names of the drivers involved in the crashes have not been released.

Where Is the Traffic Advisory?

Police took to social media to ask motorists to avoid the area until those crashes could be cleared. By 6:15 Tuesday evening, traffic was once again flowing on I-95 through Bangor.

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

Take A Forbidden Look Inside Frozen Fort Knox

Fort Knox is closed for the season. While winter visitors can roam the grounds, the interior of the fort is closed off from the general public. If you browse through the photos below, you'll see why the fort is strictly off-limits until spring. That being said, we were given permission to enter the fort to create this gallery.

Again, the fort is closed from November through April. Do not attempt to enter the interior of Fort Knox. Entering the fort during the closed months is trespassing, and very dangerous.
