SIDNEY, Maine (AP) - Maine State Police believe a truck driver hauling 90,000 pounds of lumber fell asleep at the wheel and ran off of Interstate 95, with most of his cargo breaking loose from a trailer that slammed into a rock ledge.

The driver, 32-year-old John Rancourt of Jay, escaped from the wreck in Sidney unhurt. The truck and trailer were demolished in the accident, which happened at about 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The northbound travel lane was closed for a while, and was reopened after noon.
