State Police report that traffic is now flowing through the site of a truck crash at the Royal River Bridge on Interstate 295.

Traffic was expected to move slowly at first, as the logjam opened and cars that had been stopped or moving slowly were able to resume speed.

Cars that had diverted onto Route 1 continue to snarl traffic there in places.

A separate crash was reported on the northbound lanes of the Maine Turnpike just south of the York toll plaza.

A multi-car crash was causing major delays on the interstate entrance to Maine just as thousands of tourists are arriving to vacation in the state.

YARMOUTH – A car-truck accident on I-295 northbound is tying up traffic in both directions, state police said.

The accident occurred about 10:30 a.m., when a Buick spun on the road and came to rest in the breakdown lane next to the guardrail. A truck, also traveling northbound, then swerved into the highway median just after passing over the Royal River bridge and rolled over. The front of the truck clipped a car heading southbound.

The truck was carrying wood chips, which were spilled on the northbound lanes, while southbound lanes were closed due to fuel leaking from the truck. As of 1 p.m., one northbound lane was open and a southbound lane was expected to open within a half an hour, after the fuel is cleaned up.

Police said injuries to the motorists were minor.

THe driver of the Buick was David Gilbert, 64, of Berwick. The truck driver was Roderick Lander, 58, of Guilford. The driver of the southbound car that was hit by the truck was Brad Kelly, 27, of Brunswick.

Police did not say whether any charges would be filed.
