A man from Strong was injured Thursday morning after the tractor-trailer truck he was driving rolled over on state Route 27 near the U.S.-Canadian border in Coburn Gore, authorities said.

As a result of the crash, the border crossing into Quebec at Coburn Gore was closed for about an hour.

The driver, 47-year-old Scott Theriault, was taken to Franklin Memorial Hospital in Farmington with minor injuries, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The truck was carrying paper and is owned by TT Dunphy Inc., of North Anson, and was headed north to Quebec.

The crash took place around 6 a.m. in the unorganized territory in Franklin County – near the town line of Chain of Ponds – and stopped traffic for more than an hour, according to a news release from McCausland.

Theriault lost control of the tractor-trailer and it hit a guardrail. The trailer portion of the vehicle was split in half after striking a bridge abutment, spilling its load of paper.

A nearby logger used his equipment to help move the overturned truck in the road and allow traffic to pass.

The road was reopened by 9:30 a.m. and cleanup of the paper, some of which tumbled into a nearby stream, was underway. Maine State Police, the Department of Transportation and Department of Environmental Protection responded to the crash.

No charges will be filed in the crash, McCausland said.
