LEE, Maine — A Princeton man was charged with drunken driving Friday after he rolled his truck on Route 6.

Albert Harnois, 51, was transported to Penobscot Valley Hospital in Lincoln complaining of pain, Penobscot County Deputy Sheriff Peter Stone said Saturday.

The results of a blood alcohol test were not yet available, the deputy said.

In addition to alcohol, speed also was a factor in the crash, he said.

Harnois was driving east on Route 6 shortly before 7 p.m. Friday when he went off the right side of the road, overcorrected and struck a guardrail on the left side of the road, according to Stone.

Striking the guardrail caused his 2004 Ford pickup to roll over, the deputy said. It came to rest right side up on top of a different guardrail.

The truck was demolished.

Harnois is scheduled to be arraigned in March in Lincoln District Court on a charge of operating under the influence of intoxicants, Stone said.
