The driver of this pickup walked away bleeding after losing control of his truck on Sutherland Pond Road and crashing into a tree at about 6 p.m. Friday in Sabattus. A witness said the man driving the truck got out of his mangled vehicle after slamming into the tree. It did not appear the injuries were life-threatening, the witness said, but the driver was taken to a Lewiston hospital to be examined. Sabattus police and fire crews responded to the wreck, as did a fire engine from Wales. The name of the driver was not immediately available. A stretch of Sutherland Pond Road remained closed later Friday night as police investigated and tow crews attempted to haul away the truck. The wreck occurred on a stretch of road that curves sharply. One man who lives in the area said the spot has been the site of numerous crashes in years past. Jon Mennealy photo
