Traffic was at a standstill heading down from Brewer to Ellsworth for about 20 minutes as they removed 1 vehicle, but as you can see the tractor trailer was still in the woods. Dedham Fire Department responded and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department was at the scene of another accident.

The good news is that Maine DOT trucks were out, and once clear of this major accident in Dedham on Route 1A it was smooth sailing down to Ellsworth.
