The driver, Cleveland Richardson, 57, of Patten, was not injured, according to Ashland Police Chief Cyr Martin early Monday evening.
According to Martin
, Richardson was negotiating a curve on Route 11 in a fully loaded logging truck belonging to H.C. Haynes, Inc.
of Winn, when he
lost control of the truck.
said it had just begun to snow at the time and the roads were slippery.
Traffic was reduced to a single lane for much of the afternoon at the scene and closed completely for a while as trucks arrived to pick up the spilled logs.
By 5 p.m. traffic was being allowed through the scene on a stop-and-go basis, Martin
said, as the logs were being cleared off the roadway.
said that work was expected to last through 6:30 p.m.
