PORTLAND, Maine — The funeral service plans for Maine State Police Det. Benjamin Campbell were announced Thursday evening.

The service will begin at 11 a.m.
NEWS CENTER Maine will be covering Det. Campbell's service online and on-air.
Det. Campbell was killed Wednesday morning in a "bizarre" accident on I-95. He was standing outside of his cruiser helping another driver when two wheels separated from a logging truck passing by. One wheel rolled into the median, but the other hit Campbell, seriously injuring him.
Crews responded to help Det. Campbell, but he later succumbed to his injuries at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center.
Det. Campbell's body was taken from the Medical Examiner's Office in Augusta back to his home in Millinocket Thursday.
He is survived by his wife, Hillary, and their 6-month-old son, Everett.
