PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Pre-crushed cars caused headaches on a Maine turnpike when they fell off a New Hampshire truck hauling them to a Topsham recycling plant.

Maine state police have cited a New Hampshire company and driver for not securing its load in the 7:30 a.m. mishap Friday.

Three of the 15 crushed cars fell off the trailer owned by Lambert’s Auto and Truck Recyclers of Rochester and landed on Interstate 295 in Portland near Tukey’s Bridge.

Police spokesman Steve McCausland said there were no injuries, but drivers had to swerve to avoid the cars that landed in two of the four northbound lanes.

The lanes were closed for more than an hour while the wrecks were cleared.

Also cited was the truck’s driver, 30-year-old Jason Fisher of Rochester, New Hampshire.
