Drivers, perhaps a tad too confident in their skills behind the wheel, have kept state troopers busy Friday morning, crashing all over the Maine Turnpike.

Since 6 a.m. alone, troopers have responded to more than 10 crashes, according to Shannon Moss, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

What’s behind the flurry of crashes: People driving way too fast for the snowy conditions.

It might prove to be an easy lesson for these drivers, because all of them have walked away from the wrecks without injury, according to Moss.

One trucker driving a tractor-trailer south on the turnpike in York lost control, striking the guardrail and jackknifing. The crash blocked all three lanes, but the driver wasn’t hurt and no summons was issued, Moss said Friday morning.

Moss reminded Mainers to slow down. No one wants to spend Friday deep in a snowdrift.
