Maine State Police say only minor injuries resulted from a three vehicle wreck on the Maine Turnpike in Portland this morning.  Southbound traffic was disrupted for two hours as vehicles were diverted off the road at exit 48

The crash took place just after 5 AM in the construction zone at mile 47. A 2012 Nissan Juke operated by Joseph Forestell (35) of Portland broke down in the road.   A Ford F350 one ton construction truck owned by Landry French construction and operated by Trent Filer (32) of Peru stopped behind the Nissan, but was then struck from behind by a tractor trailer.

A Pepsi tractor trailer truck operated by Michael Gallant (34) of Mechanic Falls crested the hill and was unable to stop. In turn, the Ford then rear ended the Nissan, which then spun into Jersey barriers, blocking both southbound lanes.  The crash site was reopened to traffic just after 7 AM .   Troopers said none of the drivers required hospitalization.
