Two tractor-trailers collided early Tuesday morning on Interstate 95 north of Medway.

The crash happened just before dawn near the Penobscot-Aroostook county line, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The crash reduced northbound traffic on the interstate to one lane, McCausland said.

He said high winds that likely caused snow drifts in the road contributed to the crash.

No one was injured.

The crash comes after two separate tractor-trailer crashes in Maine on Monday, when a big rig jackknifed on an icy I-95 in Bangor and another rolled over amid high winds on the Maine Turnpike in Wells.
