A semi truck hauling explosives crashed in Maine on Tuesday, narrowly avoiding a disastrous situation. 

The accident happened on Tuesday, May 11th near Sabattus, Maine at around 12:30 p.m.

According to WGME News, the semi truck was hauling explosives for Maine Drilling and Blasting of Gardiner along Interstate 95 when another vehicle cut the driver off. This maneuver then forced the semi truck onto a grassy shoulder where it struck a guardrail.

The rig suffered only minor damage, including three flat tires.
