ETNA — A tractor-trailer spun out of control and collided with a plow truck Monday while trying to overtake the truck on Interstate 95 at mile 165 in Etna. 

The tractor-trailer, driven by Rodney P. Rioux, 66, of New Canada, was traveling northbound when he attempted to overtake a state plow truck driven by Alfred Washburn, 51, from Hartland, according to State Trooper Brenda Coolen. Both drivers escaped injury.

The tractor-trailer struck the Department of Transportation plow truck, causing it to spin out of control, according to Coolen. The plow truck went off the road and rolled onto its side, and the tractor-trailer went off into the median and struck the ledge.

The two vehicles were expected to stay at the accident location overnight and be removed on Tuesday.
