Tractor Trailer Hits Guard Rail in Maine, Tips Over & Spills Apparent Firewood in Roadway
It was quite a scene (and a cleanup effort) in one small Maine town on Thursday afternoon.
According to WGME 13, a tractor trailer truck that was travelling down route 25 in the small town of Limington, Maine, hit a guard rail, causing the driver lose control of the large truck. The loss of control inevitably led to the vehicle rolling over onto its side in the middle of the road.
What's more, the truck was hauling a load of apparent firewood at the time of the crash, causing the wood to spill all over route 25 in Limington. There was no immediate report available on if the driver of the truck was injured in the crash.
Police that were investigating on the scene believe it's likely that the driver was distracted before the crash, though they haven't specified what exactly the driver may have been distracted by.
This is a developing story and we will continue to keep it updated as more information becomes available to us.
