The crash was reported about 11:30 p.m., according to Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland.  The truck driver, 49-year-old Scott Rand of Sherman Mills, was not injured.   It's unclear why he lost control.

State Trooper Darren Vittum cited Rand for a log book violation. Damage to the cab of the truck was estimated at $15,000.

The potatoes were being offloaded to another truck  on Wednesday and the tractor trailer was expected to be removed later in the afternoon.
