ISLAND FALLS – Authorities in northern Maine spent most of the day Wednesday cleaning up the remnants of a tractor trailer accident from earlier this week.
On Tuesday morning around 10:30 a.m., State Police say a tractor trailer hauling potatoes jackknifed on I-95 southbound in Island Falls, near mile marker 278.
Police say speed and poor road conditions caused the driver to lose control and crash into the median.
The trailer was moved out of the roadway Tuesday, but crews had to wait until Wednesday when weather conditions were better, to clean up the rest.
The interstate was down to one lane for a majority of the day while the cleanup took place.
