PITTSTON, Maine — A Pittston man is charged with operating under the influence and illegal possession of schedule W drugs after crashing and rolling a cement truck Wednesday night.

Schedule W drugs in Maine could be heroin, cocaine, oxycodone, and methamphetamine. 

According to the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office, Cory Williams, 39, of Pittston was driving a truck owned by Maine-ly Concrete Corp. of Warren.

It happened around 7:30 p.m. on Route 27 in Pittston. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

The Maine State Police Commercial Vehicle Unit was called to assist with the investigation. The Kennebec County Sheriff's Office said at this point it appears Williams was traveling south, went off the right side of the road, and rolled the cement truck over onto the passenger’s side. 

AC Towing was called to upright and tow the cement truck. The road was closed for three hours while firefighters redirected traffic down the Smithtown Road.

Williams was also involved in a work truck crash, in August, after several tires on the truck blew. In that case, police said they found the incident to have been preventable by Northeast Concrete Pumping and Crane Service.
