Man Arrested For Manslaughter In 2015 Bar Harbor Accident
A man has been arrested on an outstanding warrant for manslaughter in connection with a deadly accident on Route 3 in Bar Harbor last year, police say.
Miguel Garcia, 41, was taken into custody without incident Wednesday on Sunny Hollow Place, said Bangor Police Sgt. Tim Cotton.
The warrant stems from an accident that took the life of Roger Beghtol, 79, of Hendersonville, North Carolina.
Beghtol was standing outside a vehicle that was parked along the side of the road when both Beghtol and the vehicle were struck by a box truck.
Police had said that Garcia was behind the wheel of the truck, which was registered to Installed Building Products of Hermon.
Garcia had been actively avoiding contact with law enforcement officers since his arrest warrant was issued on April 14, Cotton said.
