A tractor-trailer carrying wind turbine
equipment for the Kingdom Community Wind project in Lowell has tipped over on Interstate 91.

The accident happened Thursday north of Orleans. State police say I-91 was closed for the night so
the truck and equipment could be removed.

Green Mountain Power Spokeswoman Dorothy
Schnure says the tractor-trailer was traveling through an area being paved when
its tires went into the soft shoulder. She says there were no injuries and
speed was not a factor.

Schnure says the trailer was being moved from
Island Pond to Kingdom Community Wind with a law enforcement escort, as
required by its permit.
