Bridge Street in Gardiner was closed for a few hours Monday morning after a tractor-trailer hauling crushed cars decoupled, causing traffic delays.

The accident, which occurred around 7:45 a.m., blocked Bridge Street, which is a main route to the downtown, but the street was reopened later in the morning.

No one was hurt, police said.

The truck was traveling from Windsor to Topsham when the accident occurred.
