Driver Charged in Log Truck Crash on Route 11
A trucker faces drug-related charges after a log truck rollover in southern Aroostook County Thursday afternoon.
Maine State Police received a complaint around 1 p.m. of a loaded log truck driving erratically on Route 11 just north of Moro Plantation. Trooper Scott Duff responded to investigate, but before he could locate the truck it was reported the truck had gone off the road, spilling the logs into the ditch.
Police say the driver, 41-year-old Corey Porter of Princeton, was found to have marijuana in the truck and was issued a criminal summons. Porter was wearing his seat belt and was not injured in the crash.
Westerdahl’s Towing of Littleton was called to finish unloading the logs from the trailer and remove the truck from the roadway.
Trooper Todd Steton of the State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit also responded to the scene.
