No one was injured, but the mud truck was totaled.Police say the accident could have been preventing if the truck was on a trailer instead. Maine State Police Trooper, Daren Dittun, said “If a vehicle is being towed on a tow dolly, the tow dolly has to be registered or the vehicle in tow has to be registered. Being an alternate vehicle such as that, it should be on a dual axel trailer being towed.”The department of transportation was called to the scene to clean up the remaining debris from the mud truck.
