CASCO — A Poland Spring Water tanker rolled over Monday morning on Route 11, sending the driver to Bridgton Hospital with minor injuries and closing the busy road.

Just before 7 a.m., Mark Ormsby, 55, of Westbrook apparently lost control of the water-filled tanker while running down a particularly curvy stretch of road, according to Holly Hancock, assistant chief of Casco Fire and Rescue.

The tanker appeared to have hit a patch of dirt and flipped, Hancock said. It came to rest between the Winslow and Pavilion roads.

Emergency workers detoured traffic around the accident site.

By noon, wreckers managed to move the truck into an upright position and prepared it to be hauled away, Hancock said.

The crash site was also being visited by people from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to examine and oversee cleanup of some fuel oil that spilled in the wreck.

Ormsby was treated and released from the hospital.
