TRENTON – Police are investigating the cause of an accident that happened in Trenton Sunday.
Officials say an SUV hit a guardrail sideways, rolled over and hit a phone pole before stopping at the beginning of the Route 3 bridge leading onto Mount Desert Island.
A Trenton, 57, was the only person inside the vehicle. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The driver was lucky. Police said the man was wearing a seatbelt but the vehicle may have gone into the water if it had missed the phone pole.
Police said traffic was down to one lane on Route 3 for more than three hours.
