YORK (AP) — Authorities in Maine say a roadway was closed for several hours and four people were hospitalized after a 10-vehicle pileup in which a dump truck overturned and landed on a car.
The incident happened just after 4 p.m. Thursday on U.S. Route 1 in York. Police Chief Doug Bracy says it appears that the truck driver swerved to avoid a vehicle at an intersection, causing the truck to turn over on its side. The truck hit cars and a motorcycle that were stopped at a traffic light.
Four people were hospitalized with injuries not considered life-threatening. Ten people were treated at the scene.
Bracy says the incident is “probably one of the largest accidents” the department has seen in York. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
