BOOTHBAY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A part of Butler Road in Boothbay is closed this morning after an accident that happened there around 2:00AM.
Police are trying to find the driver who crashed into a pole, then abandoned his or her car and left the scene. Butler Road isn't a particularly curvy road, but this part of it does have an S-shaped turn. Central Maine Power crews are on scene replacing the pole that was destroyed in the accident.
