JAY - A wayward trailer slowed traffic on Route 4 on Wednesday after it came unhooked, spun out and flipped, dumping a small load of bark mulch on the road.

Brian Fournier, 31, of Jay had just left the Transfer Station heading north on Jay flats shortly after 9 a.m. when the trailer he was hauling behind his Dodge Durango let go, said Sgt. Troy Young of Jay Police Department.

The dual-axle trailer, owned by Marco Grimaldi also of Jay, spun, flipped and ended up on its side on the yellow line, Young said.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident and Fournier was not hurt but his SUV was damaged. The back window of the Durango was broken, he said. The trailer received quite a lot of damage.

By chance, a Maine Department of Transportation vehicle carrying a backhoe happened upon the scene. The crew assisted in moving the mulch from the road, Young said.

Jay Fire Department responded to the accident and Hilltop Collision Center hauled the trailer away, Young said.
