A Semi accident in Monroe County this morning detoured traffic for several hours and left quite the mess.
Just before 4, Ben Allen of Bangor was driving a Semi Tractor-trailer southbound on Highway 27 when he swerved to avoid hitting several deer in the road. The truck went into the northbound ditch though Allen was able to bring the trailer back onto the highway.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Pickett is facing 20 separate charges, including attempted first degree homicide, kidnapping and car theft, related to a crime spree in September of 2013. He allegedly told police that he planned to kill the woman and said he choked her and kicked her in the face. He also told police he was going to put her in the trunk but didn’t know where he would take her since it was a spur of the moment decision.
