A truck carrying potato seed overturned as it rounded a corner in Linneus, Maine, on Sunday, leading to a temporary road closure while authorities cleaned up the spill.

State police said the 35-year-old driver of the truck was turning right onto Bangor Road from Barton Road when the tires went into a ditch, causing the truck to lean sharply. The load then separated from the truck, spilling the potato seed.

Bangor Road was temporarily blocked while the truck was removed from the road.
