According to WABI TV 5, a person was transported to the hospital following a crash on Interstate 95 in Howland, Maine, on Thursday.

A truck hauling a trailer full of snowmobiles hit a spot of ice on the Interstate yesterday causing it to lose control and drive off the highway overpass in Howland, falling about 20-25 feet before coming to a stop.

According to Maine State Police, Trooper Kari Kurth,

“I thought it’d be a lot worse than what it was. One gentleman was taken to the hospital with a deep laceration, and that was it. And the other ones are here just taking care of the snowmobiles and taking care of everything else that got destroyed in the crash. They’re pretty shooken up. They’re pretty upset about the whole thing. Glad to be alive, but they’re pretty disappointed in what happened." Kurth told WABI.

Following the crash, the section of road was closed for about two hours as crews worked to restore lines that had been taken down in the crash. Additionally all the snowmobiles that had been on the trailer needed to be recovered.
