A section of Interstate 95 in Medway was closed to traffic in both directions following a fiery car-truck crash in which the trucker was rescued after his tractor plunged off a bridge into the Penobscot River.
The driver of the car was transported to a Bangor hospital for treatment of second- and third-degree burns.
State police say the motorist, identified as John Church of Fredericton, New Brunswick, drifted out of the passing lane and struck the tractor-trailer, causing it to jackknife and shear off part of the guardrail.
Both vehicles burst into flames.
The tractor-trailer came to rest on the bridge with the tractor perched over the edge.
It eventually broke free and fell into the river.
The driver, Ronald Gallant of Prince Edward Island, was able to roll down the window before hitting the water.
He made it out of the cab and was rescued by boat.
Gallant received first-aid for a minor scrape but was not seriously injured.
