SMYRNA, Maine — A 33-year-old Littleton man was killed early Thursday morning in an accident in Smyrna.

State police Lt. Darrell Ouellete said early Thursday evening that the accident happened at 4:30 a.m. on Route 2.

According to Ouellette, Gabriel Williams, 33, of Littleton was driving alone in his 2003 Sterling tractor and trailer hauling wood chips.

Williams reportedly lost control of the vehicle shortly after he left the offramp from the southbound side of Interstate 95. The tractor-trailer struck a utility pole, careened off Route 2 and rolled over.

Police said they are continuing to investigate the accident to determine the cause.

The accident is being investigated by Trooper Chad Fuller, who was assisted by several other troopers.

The Houlton Fire Department assisted at the scene, as did the Houlton Ambulance Department, Maine Public Service and personnel from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
