SCARBOROUGH — Gorham police said a Scarborough truck driver received minor injuries Tuesday morning after an accident on Little Sebago Road (Route 237).

While Mark Searway, 50, was not seriously hurt, his spilled load of chicken parts forced the road to be closed for several hours. The accident occurred just before 5 a.m. and was caused by driver inattention, police said.

While headed north, Searway apparently lost control of the Troiano Waste Services truck he was driving, and struck a pole on the right side of the road. He then tried to correct his course, steered off the left side of the road and rolled the truck, police said.
