Maine State Police say a Limestone man was injured Monday night when he flipped his truck after trying to light a cigarette while driving in Woodland.

Ryan Lowell, 29, was driving through the Aroostook County town on Route 161 around 8 p.m. when he lost control of his Ford F-250 pickup, drove off an embankment, flipped end over end and crashed through several trees. The truck came to rest on its roof in a field, according to Cpl. Chuck Michaud.

State police said in a Facebook post that the accident is an example of how seat belts save lives.
