Dozens of crashes on icy southern Maine roads

The Associated Press

ALFRED, Maine — A sudden drop in temperature turned wet roads into icy roads in southern Maine, causing more than two dozen crashes in two hours Saturday morning.

Sgt. Ron Lund of the York County Sheriff’s Department told WMTW-TV that his department responded to about 25 crashes within two hours Saturday morning. He said several of the crashes were rollovers, and several people were taken to the hospital.

The accidents happened in South Berwick, Lebanon, Alfred, Lyman and Waterboro as rain that had fallen earlier in the morning froze on the road when the temperature dropped.
