A scary accident today for a trucker in Albion.
He was delivering a building for New England Rent To Own LLC. when he was cut off by another driver.
He had to swerve and the load ended up crashing onto its side in the middle of Route 137.
Fortunately there weren't any injuries.
Bobby James says the crash was a testament to how strong the buildings are constructed.
The roadway had to be closed while the building was removed from the trailer and righted.
No word on if the woman who allegedly cut off the driver will face charges.
