NEWBURGH, Maine — Two people suffered only superficial injuries Sunday afternoon when the Ford Ranger pickup truck they were riding in rolled over on Interstate 95.

While the names and ages of the driver and his passenger were not immediately available, Maine State Police Trooper Brian Bean said neither required a trip to the hospital. Emergency medical personnel treated cuts and other injuries at the scene.

According to Bean, the driver said he was driving south on I-95 shortly after 1 p.m. when his truck — which was towing a trailer loaded with a small tractor — began to fishtail near mile marker 174.

The driver was unable to regain control of the pickup, which left the roadway, went down an embankment and rolled over onto its roof, the trooper said. The trailer tipped onto its side, with the tractor still securely attached, he said.

Bean said that the pickup was heavily damaged.

“The cab was caved right in,” he said. There was no damage to the tractor, he said, adding that no charges will be filed in connection with the accident.
