SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A truck that was carrying a crane crashed into an overpass bridge, shutting down traffic on part of the Maine Turnpike.

State police say the crane overturned on the Maine Turnpike in the northbound lane in South Portland during the late morning on Monday. They say the driver, 58-year-old Loel Faulkingham of Auburn, was treated for multiple injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.

Police say no charges were filed stemming from the incident.

Northbound traffic was detoured around the area until the wreck could be removed and an oil spill cleaned up.

State police say engineers were also inspecting the overpass itself.
