A tractor-trailer hauling crushed cars overturned early Wednesday morning on Interstate 295, closing the road south of Brunswick.
Kevin Russell, 56, of Weeks Mills was driving a tractor-trailer on I-295 in Freeport when he lost control of the truck in the fog, striking a guardrail before overturning and spilling crushed cars across the southbound and northbound lanes, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
A northbound tractor-trailer struck some of the wreckage, McCausland said. The crash happened between exits 22 and 24, according to CBS affiliate WGME.
The northbound and southbound lanes reopened about 7 a.m. after wreckers cleared the scene, according to McCausland. The interstate near the crash was closed for about four hours, he said.
Russell suffered minor injuries, but did not require medical attention, McCausland said. The other driver also escaped serious injury.
No charges are expected.
