Boy Injured in Hit-and-Run in Hermon, Maine
Police say a boy was taken to the hospital with serious injuries Friday night after a hit-and-run collision in Hermon.
According to the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office, the crash took place on Route 2 just after 7:00 p.m., in an area known as Miller Hill.
Three boys were walking along the road, when a light-colored car headed east towards Bangor struck one of them and did not stop, police say. It was raining at the time.
The boy was taken by ambulance to a Bangor hospital with what officials described as “serious but non-life-threatening” injuries.
The Sheriff's Office on Saturday said the passenger side mirror belonging to a Dodge Caliber sedan was found at the scene of the alleged hit-and-run.

Emergency personnel responded to other vehicle crashes on Route 2 in Hermon Friday evening, but no further details are available at this time. Officials said some were likely due to the vehicles hydroplaning on the wet road surface.
