SACO — The eastbound lane of Route 112 reopened Tuesday afternoon after a tractor-trailer loaded with 16-ounce bottles of water crashed near the Buxton town line at 1:30 a.m.

The driver of the truck was not injured, Saco police said. The truck was destroyed and also knocked out a utility pole.

The crash left electrical and telephone wires lying on the road, compelling authorities to close the road and reroute traffic several miles around the area, police said.

The westbound lane reopened at 11:30 a.m.

The Maine State Police commercial vehicle enforcement unit is investigating the crash as well as local police. Saco police did not charge the driver.

The crash happened at a bend in the road and there have been several tractor-trailer crashes there in the past, police said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Some of the bottled water was intact, but much of it was damaged, police said.
