AUBURN — A man was pulled from a crumpled, overturned black truck that rolled over on Hotel Road at around 8 p.m. Thursday.
"Speed seems to be a factor," Cpl. Matt Dailey said. "It appears that the driver came around the corner too fast, left the pavement and over-corrected and ended up rolling."
The truck came to a stop near the intersection with East Shore Road. The driver was alone in the vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center, Dailey said. The victim's name and condition were not available late Thursday.
A woman at the scene who declined to give her name said she came upon the accident right after it happened and tried to talk to the driver.
"I'm a nurse; I wanted to make sure he was breathing," she said. "He was crushed up sideways, his head under the seat. He was buckled in."
He was breathing and moaning, she said.
