Man plummets to Interstate 95 in Bangor

BANGOR-Police are trying to figure out why a man ended up falling onto the Interstate from an overpass in Bangor.

It was around 10:00 when rescuers were called to the highway beneath the Hammond Street overpass.

That's where a man either jumped or fell to the roadway below.

We've learned the man is in his early twenties and he's suspected to have a couple of broken legs.

He was rushed into an ambulance and brought to the hospital for treatment.

Police will now try to figure out whether he fell or intentionally jumped.

Craig Colson became news director and anchor at WVII ABC 7 and WFVX Fox Bangor in December of 2012. He began his career in broadcasting in 1985 while working as a news photographer at another Bangor television station. Craig worked his way up through the ranks and became the main anchor for the nightly newscasts before leaving in 2009. At that point, he became news director for four local radio stations and delivered the morning news before taking on his current position.

Craig grew up in a "news family" and followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a news director and anchor. His brother is also a news photographer at a Boston television station.

Craig's career has brought him all over-reporting from everywhere from Washington D.C. to Red Square in Moscow, Russia. When he isn't reporting the news, Craig can be found taking on new adventures with his two daughters or exploring the coast of Maine in his kayak. His other passion is making furniture in his shop or just about anything involving the outdoors.
