FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine say a logging truck inadvertently snagged a Hyundai and shoved the smaller car down the road for about 200 feet before stopping.

The Lewiston Sun-Journal (https://bit.ly/1fbhgex ) reports that nobody was hurt when the fully-loaded truck driven by Keith Roy of Lancaster, N.H., changed lanes Friday in Farmington and caught the hatchback by a bumper.

Officer Darin Gilbert was making a traffic stop nearby when he saw the car owned by 57-year-old David Richards being pushed down the road, the driver side squarely squished against the front of the Western Star big rig.

Roy didn’t notice he had linked up with the much-smaller vehicle until he stopped at a traffic light and other people alerted him.

He was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way.
