06 Apr From WCME News to 9: A Deadly Jump in Brunswick
Some significant traffic backups are holding up drivers in Brunswick and Topsham in the aftermath of a situation in which a man stood on the roof of the overpass at the junction of Route 1 and Route 196 and jumped into the southbound lane of Route 1, before being pronounced dead a short time later. No word yet on the identity of the man or the circumstances that led to the jump.
A police investigation is underway and all Route 1 south traffic is for the time being rerouted onto the Merrymeeting Bridge. Updates through the evening on Thursday’s Midcoast Morning Buzz on Radio 9 WCME andRadio9WCME.com.
