The owner of this truck was driving on Interstate 395 Friday afternoon when he took a swig of his coffee and it went down the wrong tube and he choked, causing him to crash, Maine State Police Trooper Taylor Dube said after the driver, who was not identified, was taken to Eastern Maine Medical Center to be checked out. A washer and dryer strapped in the back of the man’s pickup went flying into the roadway during the crash and Trooper Trevor Snow pulled them to the side of the roadway.
