STOCKTON SPRINGS, Maine —Firefighters from surrounding communities as well as state, county and local police converged on Route 1 about a half mile east of the Route 1A intersection late Thursday where a tractor-trailer collided with a pickup truck.

At about 11 p.m., few details were available, but a tarp was placed over the driver’s side of the pickup truck and the front end of the pickup was crushed.

The tractor-trailer was lying on its side in a ditch off the road about 50 feet from the pickup truck. The cab of the tractor-trailer truck was gutted by fire, which also had spread up the banking and into the woods before firefighters extinguished it.

Officials at the scene were too busy to comment before press time.
