A Phillips man was driving a tractor-trailer truck that rolled over early Monday morning after it drifted onto a loose-gravel shoulder on Crash Road in Livermore, police said.

Ronald Veilleux, 54, who drove the truck for Hartt Transportation, was not injured during the accident, which happened around 6 a.m. The road was closed for four hours after the accident while wood sheathing that had spilled from the truck was being cleaned off the road, according to Sgt. Kyle Tilsley, of the Maine State Police.

Veilleux was driving through a section of S-turns on the newly paved road when the truck drifted into the soft shoulder on the corner of a turn. When he tried to bring the truck back onto the road, he over corrected and the truck rolled over onto its passenger side, Tilsley said.

The heavily damaged truck was towed away while firefighters from Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls assisted with directing traffic and removing the spilled cargo, Tilsley said.
