BANGOR, MAINE – A milk delivery truck overturned on the I-395 WB offramp at Exit 3 early Thursday morning, causing a significant spillage of milk onto the roadway and leading to the closure of the ramp.
At approximately 6:00 am on May 11, 2023, 35-year-old Austin Davis of Newburgh lost control of the vehicle, subsequently hitting a guardrail and tipping over, the Maine State Police said in a press release.
The aftermath of the accident saw gallons of milk strewn across the highway.
Davis was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital due to injuries sustained in the crash. His current condition remains unknown.
Maine State Police have closed off the ramp and expect it to remain shut while clean-up crews, including the Bangor Fire Department, Maine Department of Transportation, and the Department of Environmental Protection work tirelessly to clear the scene.
Preliminary investigations have hinted that excessive speed may have been a contributing factor in this incident.
However, the crash still remains under thorough investigation.
The State Police advised motorists to avoid the area and seek alternative routes until the clean-up operation is complete and the off ramp is safe for use again.
