Car Collides with Log Truck in Bridgewater, Maine [PHOTOS]
State Police say a young woman lost control of her car on a snow-covered road in Bridgewater Monday afternoon and struck a loaded log truck.
The crash happened around 2 p.m. when 23-year-old April Rempel of Williamstown, New Brunswick was driving east on Corner Road and her Toyota Sedan lost traction with the road surface, according to Corp. Corey Hafford.
Rempel’s car crossed the center line and struck the back of a westbound 2016 Kenworth Tractor Trailer loaded with logs, causing significant damage to her vehicle. Police say Rempel received “minimal” injuries due to the deployment of airbags and use of a seat belt.
The driver of the tractor trailer, 51-year-old Donald Eccelston of Anderson, N.B., was not injured.
Maine State Trooper Pat Pescitelli investigated the crash. Bridgewater Fire Department and Crown Ambulance also responded the scene.
