41-year-old Biniam Tewelde from Dallas, Texas was not injured in the accident. His 2014 Freightliner had disabling damage, said police. The crash happened around 10:39 pm.

Due to road conditions and the load of potatoes, the tractor trailer was not able to be towed out Monday night.

The potatoes were unloaded by hand and the unit is still at the scene as of 6:10 pm Tuesday. Officials said it will be towed from the scene.

Maine State Police Trooper Tim Saucier responded and investigated the crash.
