Driver in Logging Truck Collision Released From Hospital [UPDATE]
Two fully-loaded logging trucks collided on a narrow bridge in Northern Maine Wednesday morning, sending one driver to the hospital. According to the Aroostook County Sheriff's Department, the crash happened on the Pinkham Road, west of Ashland.
Toby Saucier had just crossed the one lane bridge over the Big Machias River when his loaded trailer was struck by a log truck driven by Dylan Bois. Both men are from Frenchville, Maine.
Chief Deputy Darrell Crandall reports Bois' truck continued across the bridge, striking the guardrail before ending up in a ditch.
Bois was taken by ambulance to The Aroostook Medical Center in Presque Isle with non-life threatening injuries. He has since been released from the hospital. Saucier was not injured.
Saucier's trailer sustained about $7,500 damage and Bois' tractor, owned by Northern Timber Trucking of Fort Kent, is believed to be totaled.
The accident remains under investigation.
