Information from P.I.O. Steve McCausland: (207-626-3811)
Among the dozens of crashes in southern Maine this morning that Troopers covered was a collision between a pickup and a tanker truck on the Maine Turnpike in Arundel. Both vehicles ended up off the southbound lane into the tree line. The crash took place at 8:30 am as the pickup was attempting to pass the big rig and went out of control. Both drivers had minor injuries and were treated at the Biddeford hospital. The driver of the pickup is 48 year old Scott Stone of Rowley, MA and the tractor trailer operator is 57 year old Glenn Martin of Buckfield. There was some minor fuel leakage from the tractor trailer’s fuel tank, but not from the tanker portion.
