Man Killed During Fourth of July Parade


BANGOR - Independence day is a time of celebration, one where family and friends come together to pay tribute to this great nation. Today, the July 4th festivities in Bangor had components of fear and sadness. First, a downtown police standoff with an apparent gunman, then, the tragic loss of life along the parade route.

Sgt. Paul Edwards of the Bangor Police Department says around 12:40 this afternoon, Bangor police say they responded to the accident on Water street.

Witnesses say an antique fire truck hit the back of a green john deer tractor.  The driver of that tractor fell into the oncoming truck, which failed to stop in time, crushing the man underneath.  Police say he died instantly.

The accident remains under investigation.  Bangor Police and Maine State Police are investigating the accident.
