Maine State Police say a 46-year-old Weston man fell asleep at the wheel of his tractor trailer logging truck, and went off the road on Route 11 in Oxbow Thursday morning.

Scott McKissick crashed in a ditch just south of Oxbow Road. Police say he was not wearing his seatbelt and his head struck and broke the windshield. McKissick told police he had been driving since 11:00 pm Wednesday night and was tired.

McKissick was taken to The Aroostook Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.

Wanna Bee Trucking was issued a traffic summons for having four defective tires on the logging trailer, said the Maine State Police.
