The entrance to the Falmouth Spur of the Maine Turnpike has been reopened, several hours after a tractor-trailer truck hauling peat moss overturned Friday afternoon, prompting the ramp closure.

The driver of the truck was slightly injured in the crash, but remained at the scene, Maine State Police said. Wreckers were there shortly before 2 p.m. to right the truck and remove it.

Police did not immediately identify the driver or disclose the cause of the crash.
