Accident prompts delays on MDI



BAR HARBOR — A motor vehicle accident at the intersection of the Acadia National Park entrance and Route 3 Monday afternoon caused traffic delays for commuters and others headed off island.

Police say Anthony Banach, 67, of Newington, Conn., failed to look for oncoming traffic as he pulled out of the park entrance onto Route 3. Banach’s 2003 Toyota sedan was struck in the driver’s-side door by an eastbound 2004 Chevy pickup truck driven by Scott Davis, 42, of Bar Harbor.

Firefighters used an extraction tool to get Banach out of his vehicle. Both men were taken to Mount Desert Island Hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
