Fiery Rollover Shuts Down I95 North in Waterville Tuesday Night
According to Maine Public Safety Spokesperson, Shannon Moss, a fiery crash shut down both northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Waterville for more than and hour on Tuesday night.
At about 8PM Tuesday night a Trooper heading north on 95 came across an apparent crash that had just happened. A 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 25-year-old Jace Tillson of Clinton, had gone off the road, rolled over and caught fire.
Reports indicate Tillson was travelling 'too fast' in the northbound lanes when he attempted to pass a Mercedes SUV that was being driven by Kemily Benes, 65 of Embden.
Tillson attempted passing the SUV using the breakdown lane, subsequently losing control, striking the SUV and driving off the road. This resulted in the truck flipping over and catching fire near the Messalonskee Stream Bridge.
Incredibly, there were no reported injuries. It took responders about 90 minutes to clear the debris and reopen the northbound lanes of Interstate 95.
