GREENBUSH, Maine — Slick roads caused by the rain that fell Thursday morning were contributing factors in two rollover accidents that happened just after 10 a.m., Maine State Police troopers said.

Trooper Christopher Cookson went to the scene of a rollover crash on Greenfield Road around 10:10 a.m.

“A vehicle went off the road because of the road conditions,” he said. “He rolled off the road and was entrapped.”

Fire and rescue crews from Old Town, Greenbush and Milford went to Greenfield Road. It took them about an hour to extricate the driver, Brian Liscomb, 21, of Pittston, who suffered an arm injury, Cookson said.

Liscomb’s 2004 Ford F-250 pickup truck was totaled in the crash, the trooper said.

The rollover was caused by “the road conditions and driving too fast for the road conditions,” Cookson said. “I’m not saying speeding. I’m saying too fast for the road conditions.”

Trooper Adam Coover dealt with the second rollover, which occurred 20 minutes later on Garland Road in Charleston. He said the 10:30 a.m. crash was relatively minor and occurred on a curve when the car got caught in loose gravel on the side of the road.

No one was injured, Coover said.
