Maine DOT shares video of car hitting gate on Casco Bay Bridge
PORTLAND (WGME) – The Maine Department of Transportation has released video of a car hitting a gate on the Casco Bay Bridge.
It happened on Thanksgiving, but the video is just now being released.
The video shows the driver heading toward the bridge gate while it was closing.
As other drivers slowed, this one did not, smashing right into the gate.
The driver turned himself into police, and is not expected to face any charges.
Maine DOT says the impact caused about $10,000 in damage.
They are now working with the driver’s insurance company to pay for it.
