BRUNSWICK, Maine — A Gray man was charged Wednesday with imprudent speed after his truck struck another vehicle in traffic and rolled over.

Isaac Gray, 31, was headed south on Route 1 near Cook’s Corner just before 4 p.m. when he struck a 2013 Nissan driven by 43-year-old Bryan Lehr of Oconomowoc, Wis., who was slowing in traffic as he neared Maine Street, according to Brunswick police Lt. Tom Garrepy.

As a result of the collision, Gray lost control of his 2001 Chevrolet pickup truck, which rolled onto its side on the inside shoulder of the highway.

No injuries were reported.

Gray was summoned for imprudent speed, Garrepy said.

Traffic was reduced to one lane for approximately 25 minutes as Gray’s vehicle was removed.

Wednesday’s crash was the second rollover within two days along the heavily traveled stretch of Route 1 in Brunswick. On Tuesday, an empty tractor-trailer tipped, spilling 30 gallons of fuel.
