Stoneham Fire Chief Greg Fox looks over the scene
of a dump truck rollover on the Win Brown Road Tuesday in Stoneham, while
Stoneham’s Emergency Management Agency Director Frank Robey studies the truck for fuel leaks. The truck’s driver and owner, Robert Hatch of Bridgton, was not injured when the 30-year-old Hemlock bridge over Meadow Brook gave way as he made his fourth trip across it carrying crushed gravel. The
private, dead-end road is located on the backside of Keewaydin Lake. Hatch later used an excavator to remove the truck from the brook.
A crew from the Town of Bridgton’s Hazardous Materials team also responded to the scene and installed two booms in the brook to help contain small amounts of diesel fuel and oil that were leaking from the truck into the brook, which flows into the lake.
