A Strong man was injured Thursday morning after a tractor-trailer truck he was driving overturned on Route 27 in Coburn Gore, near the U.S.-Canada border, authorities said.

The driver, 47-year-old Scott Theriault, was taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington for treatment of minor injuries, according to Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The truck was carrying paper and is owned by TT Dunphy Inc., of North Anson, and was headed north to Quebec.

The crash took place around 6 a.m. near the Chain of Ponds Township boundary and stopped traffic for more than an hour, according to a news release from McCausland.

Theriault lost control of the tractor-trailer and hit a guardrail. The trailer portion of the vehicle was split in half after striking a bridge abutment, spilling the paper it had been carrying.

A nearby logger used his equipment to help move the overturned truck in the road and allow traffic to pass.

The road was re-opened by 9:30 a.m. and cleanup of the paper, which also went into a nearby stream, was underway. Maine State Police, the Department of Transportation and Department of Environmental Protection responded to the crash.

No charges will be filed in connection with the crash, McCausland said.
