Heavy Snow Dumped on Parts of Maine; Several Crashes Reported

Parts of Maine received their first significant snowfall of the season on Wednesday which caused several crashes due to slippery roads.

The National Weather Service said Rangeley received 5 inches, Bethel 2.8 inches, and Jackman 2.1 inches.

On Route 9 in Devereaux Township, Maine Forest Rangers assisted with several crashes including one where a car left the roadway and rolled over. Authorities said the passenger suffered minor injuries.

Officials said snow will continue through Wednesday afternoon across northern regions. Higher elevations will see the greatest accumulations.

Another round of precipitation is on tap for the weekend. That weather system could cause freezing rain and a wintry mix in the mountains.
