A tractor trailer driver from Durham was killed in a rollover crash on I-295 in Freeport late Thursday night.

FREEPORT (WGME) — State Police say a man was killed in a crash on I-295 in Freeport late Thursday night.

According to State Police Trooper Michael Smith, a van driven by Mark Fleming swerved to avoid a deer in the southbound lane near mile marker 22 and hitting a tractor-trailer. Both the van and tractor-trailer rolled into a ditch.

Trooper Smith says the tractor-trailer driver — a man in his 50s from Durham — died on the scene.

Fleming and his wife, who was a passenger in the van, were brought to Maine Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Trooper Smith says no charges have been filed, but the district attorney will review the case, as is standard procedure.
