1. The family of the 22-year-old Portland man who died of a stab wound shortly after crashing his car on Brighton Avenue said Tuesday they disagree with the police conclusion that no crime was committed. Patrick Lobor died Saturday afternoon after his car struck a vehicle that had stopped for a red light at Brighton and Riverside Street, pushing that car into an SUV. Police said Lobor got out of his car, stumbled to the middle of the intersection and collapsed. Lobor died at the scene from a stab wound to the chest, according to the state medical examiner’s office. On Monday, police said they are confident there was no foul play in Lobor’s death, but have yet to explain how he came to be stabbed. (PressHerald)

2. A report prepared by the Portland Water District says human error caused a large wastewater spill from its treatment plant that washed away part of the Eastern Promenade Trail last Thursday morning and flowed into Casco Bay. The report also says more than 1.5 million gallons of wastewater spilled, not the estimated 1 million gallons reported initially. East End Trail is on schedule to be reopened sometime today.
