A tractor-trailer truck hauling frozen potatoes overturned Tuesday morning on Interstate 95 in Etna, according to the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The crash was reported around 9:30 a.m. and caused traffic in the southbound lanes at mile 167 to be reduced to one lane, according to a news release from Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland.

Police said the driver, 55-year-old Donald Greenwood, of Ellsworth, may have overcorrected, causing the truck to overturn off the breakdown lane. Greenwood was not injured, police said.

A crew was unloading the potatoes Tuesday afternoon, McCausland said.
